Music and Stories Coming to The Village Library

Combining the magic of music with the delight of story telling, The Village Library is joining with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic for an evening's entertainment that will delight children and adults alike.

“Musical Stories” will take place at The Village Library, 10307 N. Pennsylvania , from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2007 .

“A string quartet from the Philharmonic,” said LaVetta Dent, Manager of Village Library Operations, “will play music that has been written specifically for three children's stories, including ‘The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog,' ‘Bear Wants More,' and ‘Tippy-Toe Chick Go.' And they'll perform a variety of other music, too.”

The musical event will be interactive as well through an Instrument Playground that allows children to touch and even create their own musical sounds.

“The event was conceived for children as young as three-years old,” Dent added, “but the traditional orchestral music will appeal to adults as well.

“Musical Stories” is co-sponsored by the OKC Orchestra League, the OKC Philharmonic, and the Metropolitan Library System. Call The Village Library at 755-0710 for more information.
