Third-graders at Edna Louise Spear Elementary School in the Port Jefferson School District participated in an annual Instrument Petting Zoo on April 19.

During the event, the future musicians tried out instruments played by Earl L. Vandermeulen High School musicians. The high school performers introduced the third-graders to the many band and string instruments that they can select to play when they enter the fourth grade, including the violin, cello, saxophone and flute. Students were able to hear and touch each of the instruments represented.
