The Instrument Zoo
The care and feeding of music and young minds
The Jacksonville Symphony Guild and ARIAS (Amelia Residents in Action for the Symphony) host Instrument Zoos in the Times-Union Center and schools throughout the Jacksonville Area. At these Zoos young and old alike are given the chance to try their hand at playing the instruments the Symphony plays onstage from the harp to the clarinet to the violin to the percussion. The sounds they create are matched only by the joy on their faces.
