For the past couple weeks, more than thirty 4-H youth in Wayne County have been exploring the history of music and dancing by making and playing Native American drums and flutes, learning pioneer dances, and even making a kazoo on a 3D printer.
On Wednesday January 30 at 6PM, the first of six cultural heritage dinners for 2019 will take place at the Wayne County Community Center in Bicknell. This FREE dinner will include live music, inspiring conversation, demonstrations and exhibitions, a slide show of fascinating historical photos and stories, and fun, hands-on activities for all ages. A free booklet will be available to extend the experience with friends and family. If you’re planning to join us, please call the USU Extension/4-H Office at 435-836-1312 to register. Thanks.
We’re seeking people who would like to bring musical instruments to share as part of our exhibition. We’ll have both “touch and play” and “no touch exhibition” areas. If you provide music services such as lessons or instrument kits, feel to bring fliers or cards to share or sell.
Send us historical photos of your family history of music. Contact Project Director Annette Lamb at firstname.lastname@example.org. This project is made possible through a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities with matching funds from the Entrada Institute.
