Instrument Petting Zoo

The Long Beach Symphony’s beloved Instrument Petting Zoo is back! IPZ

is a collection of orchestral instruments that travel around to neighborhood libraries and community events to provide children with a hands-on exploratory music education experience.  Our knowledgeable volunteers give a special presentation to explain how each instrument works, how to produce a sound, and how each instrument fits into the orchestra. Afterwards, children have the chance to put what they learned to the test and try each instrument.  The Instrument Petting Zoo is designed to pique the interest of young children in playing an instrument and create lifelong music lovers.
