Free Workshop: Back by popular demand! The Instrument Petting Zoo offers hands-on fun with instruments. Students have the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the orchestral instruments they will see professionally played on stage. Each instrument is given a brief introduction and demonstration as participants move around several “stations” for the opportunity to see, hear and play the instruments. It’s a fun and educational program that teaches how vibration becomes sound and sound becomes music. Reservations are required for this 30-minute free musical experience, which will take place in the Myre River Room both before and after the Peter and the Wolf performances. After making your show reservation, please contact Mary Katz, Carson Center Director of Education, to reserve a time for your students. Space is limited.
