Not Just for Kids


Is there a musical instrument that you like the sound of or even like to play?

These are instruments that make up an orchestra. Can you name them?

One part of an Annapolis Symphony Orchestra Family Concert is Meet the Musicians. If you have questions about an instrument, or want to hear how it sounds, this is the time for you. Musicians will meet you before or after the symphony, answer your questions and demonstrate their music. What better way to help you find an instrument you like?

Do you know music?

Around Annapolis, an Annapolis Symphony Orchestra Family Concert is one of the best ways to get to know music.

At this spring's concert, Sat., March 27, kids and families hear old friends Peter Pan and Wendy spring into flight. Helping your imagination take off are the larger-than-life Bob Brown Puppets and conductor David Wiley, who has been playing music professionally since he was 10 years old. Call for stand-by tickets at the 2pm or 3:30pm performance -- or make your reservations now for next fall. Call 410/263-0907.


How many musical terms, instruments or composers can you find hidden in the word search? Circle each, looking for them forward, backward, diagonally, up or down.

HINT: You can find at least 12 words!
