LIMA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MUSICIANS TO VISIT SHAWNEE ELMWOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL
Lima, OH (April 10, 2023) – A woodwind quintet with musicians from the Lima Symphony Orchestra along with Maestro Andrew Crust will visit students at Shawnee Elmwood Primary School (4295 Shawnee Rd, Lima, OH 45806) on Friday, April 14 at 10AM. Students will learn about the woodwind family and have the opportunity to ask the musicians and Maestro Crust questions about what it takes to make it as a professional orchestra musician. Orchestra members Erin Torres (principal flute), Michael Suman (principal bassoon), Greg Hamilton (section clarinet), Nancy Wehrkamp (section French Horn), and Michael Rueda (oboe) will be featured on this performance.
The Lima Symphony In-School programs provide an opportunity for up-close, interactive music experiences for hundreds of children of all ages in Allen County. Students have the chance to ask questions and hear about guest artists’ experiences. These relaxed, often informal presentations make music accessible and interesting for children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to hear live music. This visit is part of the Lima Symphony’s ongoing commitment to educational outreach and programming in our community and is generously underwritten by Dominion Energy.
