The Rockbridge Symphony played several pieces, including the rollicking Radetzky March, to help them get familiar with the music and the instruments played.

"You never know when you might be creating an interest in a student to pick up an instrument at some point, said Rockbridge Symphony Artistic Director Mark Taylor. "And also I really like the participation part of it as well."

The students were not only encouraged to clap along, but answered questions and one even got to conduct the group.
