After attending the Billings Symphony Orchestra concert in Red Lodge on January 22, the third grade class continued studying orchestral music. First they focused on the percussion family and then on the string family. They had the pleasure of meeting with Mrs. Suzy Larson, a local violinist, on Wednesday, February 3. She brought in 4 different sizes of violins for the students to see, helped students review what they already knew about the violin, gave more information about the structure and playing of the violin, and performed several familiar tunes for the students to identify. Students also had the opportunity to hold a violin and pluck the strings. The class enjoyed this day focusing on the violin.
