Lima Symphony to bring music storytime to Bluffton

Register at the Bluffton Public Library or call 419-358-5016.

At 10:00 a.m. on Monday, February 12, the Lima Symphony Orchestra will brings its popular Symphony Storytime to the Bluffton Public Library, 145 S. Main St. The program, “Dancing in the Snow,” brings music, dancing, and favorite winter-themed books together into an interactive, educational storytime. 

Children and their families are invited to this free program sponsored by area businesses. Classic and new children’s books will be featured, including The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, The Snow Dancer by Addie Boswell, illustrated by Merce López, and The Snowman Waltz by Karen Konnerth, illustrated by Emily Neilson. 


Each book is accompanied by classic repertoire played by members of the Lima Symphony Orchestra. Classical and traditional pieces will be performed such as In the Bleak Midwinter by Gustov Holst, excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Tchaikovsky’s Waltz from Sleeping Beauty, and Strauss’s Radetsky March. 

With a focus on creative movement and music literacy, Symphony Storytime is designed to spark children’s imaginations and foster a lifelong love of and appreciation for music and literature.
