Celebrating 10 Years of the Instrument Petting Zoo

 Celebrating 10 Years of the Instrument Petting Zoo thumbnail118810

The 10th annual Instrument Petting Zoo was recently held at the elementary school. The yearly event brings together members of the high school’s instrumental ensembles, their musical instruments and third graders for a hands-on opportunity to become familiar with all the instruments of the band, orchestra and chorus.

Students were able to hear the instruments performed, ask questions about each instrument as well as experience the excitement of holding many of them for the first time. Before the end of the school year, the third graders will select the instrument they would like to begin to learn when they enter fourth grade in September.

A special thanks to music teachers Ms. Christine Creighton, Mr. Mark Abbonizio and Dr. Vanessa Salzman for organizing this educational and exciting event.
