Thanks to a grant from the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission, in addition to the public concert, the Mirari Quintet also offered educational outreach with area elementary school students and college students. Thursday the quintet played for about an hour at South Breeze Elementary School, taking students on an imaginary tour of a zoo in search of a lost puppy. The quintent played music that reflected different animals including swans, elephants, rhinos, frogs and bees along with several others.
