Story Time Performances
KSO Library Story Time
In partnership with the Knox County Public Library, KSO string quartets visit libraries throughout the community. Members of the quartet combine stories about music with classical selections, sound effects, and hands-on learning for pre-school aged children and their parents. Programs in public library branches are FREE and open to the public. In 2010, this program expanded to also serve pre-kindergarten students in Knox County Schools. The 2012-2013 program is “How Many Cats?” Join KSO musicians as they explore the importance of numbers and counting!
Join us Saturday, May 18, 2013 for the Children's Festival of Reading in World's Fair Park! The KSO Story Time quartet will be performing in the music tent at 11:00 and 12:30.

BETTER THAN COOKIES, AS GOOD AS CAKE
(A children's book written by KSO cellist Stacy Nickell Miller and published by the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra)
The Knoxville Symphony Orchestra published a children’s book about classical music written by KSO cellist Stacy Nickell Miller. Entitled Better Than Cookies, As Good As Cake, the book tells the story of a young girl who receives a violin. She finds that the sound that her violin makes, both alone and as part of a string quartet, is better than cookies and as good as cake. The characters in the book, illustrated by Stephen Brown, are loosely based on members of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
