Tootling flutes, cheery cellos and brassy trumpets – how often do you get to actually touch one of these, let alone play it? May we introduce you to the California Symphony’s annual Family Concert and “Instrument Petting Zoo”?
The event is so insanely popular, they’re doing it twice this year: Feb. 16 at 1 p.m. at Walnut Creek’s Lesher Center for the Arts, and April 13 at 2 p.m. at Antioch’s El Campanil Theatre. Tickets are $5, and the petting zoo instruments are provided by Best Music, one of our favorite music shops. (If your kid falls in love with a tuba or piccolo at the petting zoo, you’re going to come to know Best very, very well.)
