String Quartet Visits Springdale School

The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas is sharing the language of music with local elementary schools.
Springdale, AR - The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas is sharing the language of music with local elementary schools.

Members of the orchestra are visiting schools for a four day program that teaches kids orchestral basics. Students at Springdale's George Elementary heard the sounds of a string quartet Tuesday, and composed poems inspired by the tunes.

"Educationally speaking, there's ways to use music to teach all different facets of the curriculum, all different subject matter," says SONA's Education Director, Kristen Predl. "Unfortunately in this area there isn't a whole lot of access for our kids to see musicians or to come to our concerts, so this is a great way to not only bring it into the school, but get the kids to be hands on and interactive with our musicians in a one on one setting."
