MSO’s Instrument Petting Zoo

The Instrument Petting Zoo gives children and adults a chance to have an up-close look at musical instruments and play them under the supervision of musicians. Children are excited and delighted to try out instruments in our petting zoo, and many choose to take music lessons!

The MSO Petting Zoo also visits private and public Together in Music events to:

  • Provide children and adults the opportunity to explore and learn about the various families of musical instruments.
  • Provide hands-on opportunities to touch, feel, and play string, wind, brass, and percussion instruments.
  • Help participants learn to identify the family to which a given instrument belongs.
  • Discover the joy that comes from making music!

Thank you, Muncie Music Center, for your contribution to MSO by keeping the petting zoo instruments in good condition!

And, thank you for the support from Sigma Alpha Iota Alumnae Chapter.
