Fun for the whole family – join us to sing, play, move, and explore musical instruments. Music Together is the leader of research-based, early-childhood music and movement programs, recognizing that everyone has the ability to sing in tune, keep a beat, and experience world cultures through music. RSVP requested, space is limited.

11:00 – Noon: Instrumental Petting Zoo Gettysburg College Music Education Program Gettysburg College music education students will lead children (and interested adults!) through an instrumental petting zoo, where they can experiment with string, wind, brass, and percussion instruments.

Join us for this interactive and collaborative music-making experience.

2:00 – 3:00p.m.: If Music Be the Food… Concert If Music Be the Food… Gettysburg

“If Music Be the Food…” is a series of benefit concerts whose mission is to raise awareness and support for the hungry in the local community through the sharing of great music, and to teach music students about the importance of utilizing their art for service. All participants in every aspect of the endeavor volunteer their services and pay their own costs, so all proceeds can go directly to the hungry. No tickets will be sold for the concert; rather, audience members are invited to contribute monetary donations or non-perishable food items to the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen.

Please join us for music, fellowship, food, and fun as we celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Adams County Arts Council. For more information, contact Lisa Cadigan at director@adamscountymusic.com or Adam Paul Cordle at director@cordlestudios.org
