We invite you to attend the family event “Come Play with Us! A Hands-on Musical Exploration of Music Making with the RI Philharmonic Music School.”

This event is part of a series of free events offered by the Blackstone Parks Conservancy with support from the Partnership for Providence Parks and Urban Wildlife Refuge Partnership.

The event will be co-hosted by members of the Blackstone Park Conservancy and the RI Philharmonic Music School. The program will include:

  • Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo”

In this interactive experience, kids are introduced to a variety of instrument families including strings, woodwinds, brass, and guitar.  Touch, play, and try out each of the instruments!

  • Fun with Drums!

Join us for a rhythmic group adventure!  Kids will learn basic drumming technique and play on a variety of percussion instruments.

  • Early Childhood Music Class

Families can participate together in this fun and interactive class for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  This class helps to teach young children to sing, feel and move to rhythms, and participate with confidence.

  • Make your own Musical Instrument!

How about mixing art and music? Kids of all ages and parents can participate in this craft event led by BPC volunteers and create their very own musical instrument using natural materials from our very own Blackstone woods.

Join us on Saturday June 21 at 10:00a.m.-noon in the Field on River Road, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Road).
