Honk, Squeak, Scratch, Boom

Every year in Rochester, Minnesota the Rochester Symphony Orchestra sponsors an event to introduce  different types of musical instruments to children in 4th and 5th grade. The event is called “Honk, Squeak, Scratch, Boom.” About 50 Music teachers and over 60 volunteers give school children from around the area a chance to try out a multitude of different instruments and figure out which ones they like. Here is Paul Sobczak at the 2009 interviewing firsttime volunteer Tre’ Dozier.
