ISO Teddy Bear Concert


People friends and teddy bear friends enjoyed participating in a special musical story time today with members of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and ISO Learning Community, who presented “The Giant’s Violin.” The audience, along with their plush furry friends, helped tell the story with motions and animal sounds to go along with the music. After the story, kids got to see and try real violins! Thanks to all kids, grown-ups, and animal friends who came to this special concert today! Join us for the next Teddy Bear Concert coming up on April 14th at 11am in Central’s Clowes Auditorium (seating is first come, first served). See you there!
