October education programs at Museum L-A will offer an opportunity for participants to create an instruments out of common objects, such as a shoebox guitar, as pictured. On Oct. 17 and 24, Museum L-A will host programs for children ages 9-12. The programs “Music from Sounds to Symphonies” will use the current exhibit, “The Power of Music,” as their starting point and demonstrate how music can come from all kinds of common objects as well as intricately-created instruments. Both programs will take place at Museum L-A, 35 Canal St., in the Bates Mill Complex, Lewiston. On Oct. 17, students will hear and identify common instruments, then construct their own instruments out of common items such as a shoebox. On Oct. 24, students will learn about orchestras, instruments and facts about famous composers. The cost is $8 each or $15 for both programs and will run after school, from 3:30 to 5. Preregistration is required. Contact the museum at 333-3881 or [email protected] for more information or to register.
