July 23rd and 24th saw Philadelphia sweat through the hottest weekend of the year. Just across the water, we set-up shop at the Camden Children’s Garden in support of WXPN’s XPoNential Festival. From Saturday through Sunday, we gave over 100 youth an introduction to music through our Instrument Zoo and Shaker Station.
At the Instrument Zoo, children could try out instruments such as guitar, bass, keyboard and various pieces of auxiliary percussion (maraca, tambourine, etc.). A very special feature was a PVP Pipe Xylophone made by our very own Cameron Dewhitt. Beside the Instrument Zoo was the Shaker Station. Here, children could make shakers out of toilet paper rolls, raw macaroni and some creative spirit.
