The Musical Petting Zoo is a fun and informative traveling hands-on exhibit of musical instruments that's perfect for pre-schools, elementary schools, summer camps, children's library reading groups, community centers, and even senior centers!
After an introduction to the musical instruments, participants get a chance to bow a violin, blow a horn or tap out a rhythm on a drum.
- Musical Petting Zoo visits (for up to 50 participants) are $250 per 1-hour session (additional sessions for the same date and location may be requested at the rate of $200 per hour each)
- The Musical Petting Zoo travels to locations in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin, Berkshire and Worcester counties in MA, and Hartford county CT
- Each participant receives an Activity Book that includes info, coloring activities, and games about orchestra instruments
