Symphony Stories

A morning of music and literature for some East Texas children. Symphony Stories is being put on by the Tyler Public Library and the Women's Symphony League.

Dozens of preschoolers looked on, as the Tyler Area American Band played some well known favorites. After the mini-concert was over, the student musicians told the young audience a little bit about their instruments. Then, they listened to the children's classic Make Way For Ducklings.

Roylena Stewart-Sparrow brought her 21 month old son, Leroy, to watch.

"I thought it would be very educational for him to interact, with other children, and hear someone else read to him, other than his mother. He's been learning the little Einstein's with the music, so he'll get to see it in an actual performance," Sparrow said.

Symphony Stories runs through Thursday at the Tyler Public Library. It starts at 10:30 in the morning.

If you bring your child to the event, they'll get a free ticket to the East Texas Symphony Orchestra Family Concert this Saturday. They'll hear the symphonic version of Make Way For Ducklings, and our very own Mark Scirto will be narrating.
