Come Early for the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo"
Starting an hour before each Concert Hall performance, this event gives young concertgoers a chance to get up close and hands-on with the instruments they'll see played professionally on the stage--from violins, flutes, and clarinets to trumpets and percussion!
The Instrument "Petting Zoo" is a project of the Women's Committee for the National Symphony Orchestra.
Following each of the 3 p.m. performances, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.
