Bega Valley children aged two to five years old will have the chance to hear the sounds of the violin, viola and cello at this month’s Musical Storytime at the Shire’s libraries.

The Bega Valley Shire Library together with Four Winds and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) will offer children a creative Musical Storytime at the Tura Marrang, Bermagui and Eden libraries with Aurelia Quartet set to perform.

The members of Aurelia have participated in numerous chamber music ensembles and festivals and have had extensive orchestral experiences both in Australia and abroad.

Music through listening, singing and dancing is a way to increase children’s awareness of sounds, movement and language and enhances children’s memories, assists speech development and extends their vocabulary.

The free Musical Storytime will be held from 10.30am – 11.30am at the Tura Marrang library on Monday, Bermagui library on Tuesday and Eden library on Thursday.
