Instrument Petting Zoo

What better way to make classical sound accessible than to put real violins and cellos in the hands of youngsters? And we don't stop Mom or Dad from picking up an instrument they may have played many years ago. Our Instrument Petting Zoo is part of the pre-concert fun at our new Family Concert Series [make link] and has been available at the Sonoma Family Life Expo, the Human Race Marketplace, our Discovery concerts, and as part of the Arts Sonoma Festival.

"Get Your Play On: Putting Stringed Instruments in People's Hands" brought a quartet of youth musicians to play film music in the lobby of the Airport Stadium 12. Movie-goers tried out violins and cellos amidst the aroma of popcorn and the bright lights of the concession stand.
