What is a Petting Zoo?
If you'd like to learn more about the orchestra and get up close to some of the instruments you see on stage and hear during our concerts, then make sure to visit us during one of our upcoming 'Petting Zoo's' - yes you will be able to touch, hold and play the instruments!
The good news is there are no animals involved. An Instrument Petting Zoo is where we bring a variety of instruments that you would see in a Symphony Orchestra and allow you, and your children, friends and family the opportunity to touch and hold them. For those of you brave enough to try, you can also 'play the instruments'. If you have ever wondered how the trombone works, what a bassoon is, or what it feels like to play a violin, then this interactive and fun event is for you.
