Come early for the musical instrument "Petting Zoo." Starting one hour before each Family concert, this hands-on activity in the Kennedy Center Atrium gives kids a chance to get up close with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins and harp to oboes and flutes. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
Stay after the 3 p.m. concert for a "Kids' Chat." Following the 3 p.m. Family Concert, kids can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the artists.
