Barney and friends seemed to enjoy the free performance which included four instrumental and vocal pieces.

Short recitals presented by the Amman Brass Quartet, the Amman Woodwind Quintet, the Amman String Quartet and the Arab Vocal Ensemble followed the Sinfonietta, much to the delight of open house guests.

An offering of musical games also ensured active participation by visitors during the event.

The guests who tried out different instruments did so under the direction ofNMCfaculty. This opportunity provided the guests with an introduction to all string, wind, and percussion instruments, in addition to instruments used in Arab music and voice training.

No word yet on whether any music prodigies were discovered on Friday, but stay tuned!
