The Lima Symphony Orchestra adds a soundtrack to some favorite children's books.

Some kids may have found their love for music Tuesday at the Hancock County Library where the Symphony ensemble played music that fit different children's books. Symphony Storytime is a new program that the symphony recently launched in an effort to reach more adults and kids outside of Allen County. 

Sara Chongson, the Marketing Education Coordinator, who is a musician herself, says that she finds it critical for children to have early experiences with music. 

"Music is something they can enjoy their whole lives so to get a child started young, enjoying music, maybe get them interested in a playing an instrument. It's an opportunity for them. So I think that it's really important that kids have a chance to come out to a free event and see what's out there and get a different experience," says Chongson. 

The program will now be in six surrounding counties around Lima. For their program schedule, visit limasymphony.com.
