A Busy Day for the Landmarks Orchestra

June 27, 2012

On Monday, June 25th, we were fortunate to be a part of two great events in the city of Boston. The Landmarks Orchestra visited the Children’s Museum and the opening of the Tea Party Ships & Museum making for a very busy day.

From noon until 3 P.M., the orchestra set up an Instrument Playground at the Children’s Museum in Boston. Several musicians brought instruments to the museum, where children of all ages tried out trumpets, trombones, clarinets, drums, triangles, maracas, flutes and more. The children and their families loved being able to try their hand at playing various instruments with unique sounds. There was lots of music, dancing, and fun for all!

If you and your family are interested in being a part of an Instrument Playground, you’re welcome to do so on July 15 where we will be setting up a playground as part of our concert in Pinebank Promontory. For concert information please visit our website. At the show, children will be able to try out different brass instruments while the orchestra performs. As always, the performance will be free to the public.

Following a wonderful afternoon at the Children’s Museum, the orchestra performed at the grand re-opening of the Tea Party Ships & Museum on the Boston waterfront. The museum gave spectators a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party–greatly considered to be “the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution.” Following the show, spectators came indoors to watch the orchestra perform American classics at Atlantic Wharf’s Waterfront Square. The event was a wonderful and patriotic celebration for the Boston community. We’re excited to know the much-anticipated museum open to the public at last!
