Museum Shakin’ All Over with WSO and Blues Society

By Sarah Klein

The Manitoba Museum’s summer exhibit is presenting special programming every Saturday until the fall.

“Shakin’ All Over” examines Manitoba’s rich musical heritage, and is a joint exhibit by the museum and Manitoba Music Experience.

On July 10, the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra will host an instrument ‘petting zoo’ from noon to 4 p.m. Children can touch and play the various orchestral instruments that they would see during a symphony concert. The young ones can also check out the rhythm ensemble and round-singing activities presented by the WSO’s Music for Young Children partners.

Then on July 17, the Winnipeg Blues Society will present a blues harp workshop, followed by a jam session featuring some of the best performers from the city’s blues scene.

The Manitoba Museum’s Alloway Hall will be the home to the exhibit until September 6, and includes a stage where a variety of special guests will perform the music that has made this province famous.
