At 2 PM in the lobby of Cordiner Hall, families are invited to try out orchestra instruments at a free instrument "petting zoo."

“The Orchestra Rocks,” explores the ways composers and musicians play with elements of musical time to create patterns of sound and silence that are expressive and exciting. The performance will be conducted by Dr. Paul Luongo and hosted by Kevin Wayne Loomer. In addition to the full rank of Symphony musicians, performers will also include a youth choir comprised of students from the Walla Walla Public Schools (WWPS) led by Lori Parnicky; 5th grade string students from WWPS led by Julie Woods and Caleb Condie; a WWPS drumline group; and Rachel Condie, Stefanie Crumpacker-Flerchinger, and Jeremy Irland as song leaders. Projected images and opportunities for audience participation will also be included. 


The Walla Walla Symphony began performing free concerts for families and young people in our community in 1953. Our partnership with Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Instititue (WMI) “Link Up” program represents a commitment to support music education in our community. This performance will be repeated twice on Monday morning, Feb 12, for over 2,700 area 3rd, 4th and 5th graders who have been working with their music teachers on the Link Up curriculum since September.
