Instrument Petting Zoo Rocks Macon Museum | News
The Museum of Arts and Sciences partnered with the Macon Symphony Orchestra to offer hundreds of kids an instrument petting zoo.
Children traveled through the different sounds in the museum's sixth annual event.
Geared towards young children, the event gave them an opportunity to watch and listen to local musicians in the youth symphony orchestra.
And if you didn't have an instrument you could make your own. From brass, woodwind and strings every musical group was represented.
Sheryl Towers, CEO of the Macon Symphony Orchestra said she thinks the zoo is great.
"Many of them find that they make a commitment to learning to becoming involved with music for a lifetime," said Towers.
Nine year old Marcelene Leverette says, "I wanted to come here to see the instruments." She says she wasn't disappointed by the event.
Each child received a passport and earned stamps as they navigated through the instrumental families.
