All instruments normally found in an orchestra or band are included.

There will be three winners in the grades four to six category, and three winners in the grades seven and eight category, with prizes in each of $100, $50, and $25.  Presentation of the prizes will be made at the Kennett Symphony’s Children’s Concert on March 9 at West Chester University’s Asplundh Hall.
