Instrument Petting Zoo
Old Firehouse Trust, Dock Square
10:30 am to 12:30 pm
If you have ever wanted to experience playing the instruments seen and heard on the stage of the Shalin Liu Performance Center, now is your chance! Experienced professionals and students will be on hand to guide you with the correct way to hold and make music on many of the instruments of the string family, as well as instruments of the brass and woodwind families, and a Celtic harp. It is sure to be a cacophony of sound, but great fun!
Thanks to Music and Arts for providing many of the instruments used in this activity.
