PSO Visits Riverton

Today we had a special visit from the Portland Symphony Orchestra. They taught us about woodwind and brass instruments, and we learned that they need to practice a lot to be part of an orchestra. 

                                                     

We listened to some very famous pieces, including "Row, row, row your boat" and "Pop!Goes the Weasel"
