VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - The Valdosta Symphony Guild will present its annual Tunes for Tots on Saturday.

Tunes for Tots fun will begin at 10 a.m. with instrument demonstrations by musicians from the American Prize-winning Valdosta Symphony Orchestra.

This is an opportunity for children and families to discover the unique sounds of instruments from the string, woodwind, brass and percussion families.

A short performance by the South Georgia String Project will follow.

From 10:45 a.m. to noon, the VSU's Fine Arts Building will be converted into a petting zoo of sorts, allowing children of all ages a chance to try all of the instruments of the orchestra.

Families will have a chance to learn more about the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra’s educational programs. The programs include a Youth Concert Series and South Georgia String Project, a joint venture between the VSO and VSU’s Department of Music that provides low-cost, after-school stringed instrument instruction to community students ages 8 to adult.

Admission to Tunes for Tots is free of charge, and no ticket or reservation is required.

Free juice and cookies will be provided for the children.

All children must be accompanied by an adult during this event.

Whitehead Auditorium is located on the first floor of the VSU Fine Arts Building, at the intersection of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street. Free parking for this event is available in the Oak Street parking deck.

Call (229) 333-2150 for more information.
