It was an evening of surprises at the symphony. Strange sounds filled the corridors surrounding the Belding Theater at the Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts. Three different stations were set up in the hallway, each having large, resonating automotive parts like gas tanks and mufflers. Appropriate sticks and mallets were provided and people were encouraged to see if they could make music out of these vintage used car parts.
