Symphony Storytime: Up and Down

The Lima Symphony Orchestra is pleased to present a digital Symphony Storytime featuring "Up and Down" by New York Times best-selling author Oliver Jeffers. "Up and Down" is a touching story of friendship, adventure, and learning how to ask for help. Originally from Northern Ireland, Jeffers has written and illustrated over a dozen books and has been the recipient of many children’s book awards. Paired with exciting music performed by the Lima Symphony Orchestra string quartet the story comes alive. Listeners are introduced to string pizzicato technique and asked to listen for this technique throughout the performance. As with in-person story times, this program serves to introduce children to classic and beloved children’s literature, bringing the books to life with specially selected classical music. Musical selections include "String Quartet in F Major, Mvt. 2" by Maurice Ravel and "Pizzicato Polka" by Johann II and Joseph Strauss. Read by Renee Keller and accompanied by Michael Houff (violin 1), Matthew Latawiec (violin 2), Carmen Granger (viola), and Shelbi Wagner (cello). This program is part of the Lima Symphony Orchestra's educational commitment and is generously sponsored by: G.A. Winzter & Son Co., Statebank, Thermal Gard, Cooper Family Foundation, Van Wert County Foundation, AC Dienstberger Foundation, The Ohio State University at Lima, and season sponsor the Ohio Arts Council.
