Peabody Open House

It's one thing to hear about a child prodigy, and it's quite another to actually hear one. Lots of small bodies with big talent will entertain visitors at the Peabody Open House on Sunday. Young violinists and pianists from the school will play chamber music, including students in the Young People's String Program. Also, the school's dance and early-childhood education departments will offer demonstrations for parents and children. Faculty member Angela Taylor will perform music with computers and lead a hands-on demonstration of new techniques. Guided tours of the Peabody will be offered throughout the day. And performances by the Peabody Symphony Orchestra, Peabody Wind Ensemble and soloists will entertain the entire family.

The open house takes place 2 p.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at the Peabody Institute's Friedberg, Griswold and Leakin halls and on the Peabody Plaza. Enter at 1 E. Mount Vernon Place or 609 N. Charles St. Free. Call 410-659-8124.
