First Steps in Music to be offered at Local Library Branches

May 24, 2017: The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir (FWCC) and the Allen County Public Library have partnered to offer an exciting new music program for kids ages 0-2 and their caregiver. First Steps in Music, led by FWCC’s Whitley Community Choir Director Becky Walter, will introduce babies and toddlers to activities that will help them become tuneful, artful, and beat-ful. The program is free and does not require registration; however, space is limited and it is first come, first served.
