The Creative Arts Parent Association hosts Elementary Rental Night each September for elementary families with beginning musicians. We invite vendors of string and band instruments to Wayland as a courtesy for parents, so that they can rent an instrument for their children without trekking out of town.
This year’s event brought a very long line of string families to the Johnson String tables, along with a steady flow of visitors to the Leonard’s Music stand. We would like to note that families are by no means obligated to rent from these companies, or even to attend the rental night. We offer it simply as a convenience for those who are interested.
Adorable quote of the night: Asked why he chose the viola as his instrument, a young boy replied, “Well, it sounds nice. But the real reason is that my grandmother’s name is Viola.”
