Instrument Petting Zoo
Safari through the sounds of your symphony orchestra! Our traveling Instrument Petting Zoo brings a fun musical experience into the classroom and straight into the hands of kids in our community - at no cost!
This program is geared for 3rd through 5th grade students and meets California academic standards for music. Students experience a 30 minute demonstration followed by a guided opportunity for each child to hold and play the instrument of their choice.
Available for schools, after school programs, community groups, or other organizations this traveling music experience can be customized to fit your students or organization.
The Modesto Symphony Orchestra and Stanislaus County Library have joined forces to provide a series of FREE interactive musical story hours. Each Symphony Storytime session is comprised of a musical themed book reading to promote listening and motor skills.
Immediately following the reading is an interactive presentation of the Symphony's Instrument Petting Zoo. Kids have the opportunity to handle and play a variety of instruments, learn about rhythm and get busy with the fun of making music.
Perfect for preschoolers aged 3-6 and their caregivers, this will be an amazing musical reading adventure you won’t soon forget!
