NEW HAVEN - The New Haven Symphony Orchestra  will present five free performances of "Creating Musical Readers" at branches of the New Haven Free Public Library from June 26 to  28, according to a release.
 
"Literacy and music combine when NHSO violist Xinyi Xu brings the musical story of Mole Music to life as she reads to students and her viola becomes part of the story. Children will be enchanted and inspired by the story of Mole, who learns about the magic of music when he plays violin. This program is geared towards children ages four through ten. Each event is free and will also feature a string instrument discovery zone," the release said.
