Posted on: April 3, 2014

The Lexington Philharmonic in Kentucky will participate in the next installment of its ongoing Peanut Butter & Jelly Concerts for children and families on April 5, with “Music Builds Literacy,” featuring a reading of Mother Goose fairytales interspersed with music provided by a woodwind quintet from the orchestra. The series is sponsored by the J.M. Smucker Company and includes short interactive performances along with storytime and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. The series consists of two morning “Music Builds Literacy” programs at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington, followed by an afternoon performance at the Leeds Center for the Arts in Winchester, Kentucky. “Music Builds Literacy” is part of the Philharmonic’s education programs, modeled after the “S.T.E.M. to S.T.E.A.M.” curriculum, which is a national movement designed to add art as a core subject along with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
