It's not everyday you see big yellow school buses on the Texas A&M campus but this day was an exception.

As little feet filled Rudder Auditorium, the finest symphony in the Brazos Valley prepared for a memorable performance.

Marcelo Bussiki lead the orchestra as 4th and 5th grade students from all over the Brazos Valley got an ear opening experience.

"Sometimes it's the first time they hear classic music and the kids just light up," said Dr. Mary Koeninger with the symphony.

Most students were enthralled by the performance, while others found some time for a quick nap.

But a rendition of Peter and the Wolf took the students appreciation of the art form to a whole new level.

"You see the kids are just mesmerized and just enjoying it," said Koeninger.

With over 4,000 pairs of eyes on the performance, the reviews hit a high note.

"I usually ask them, are you having fun? And they usually scream out, yes," said Koeninger.

The Brazos Valley Symphony is celebrating its 30th year in existence and its next performance is on February 19th. Internationally acclaimed violinist Lara St. John will make her way to the Brazos Valley for a special performance.
