Join us for a Musical Petting Zoo road trip around the world! In this special presentation of our popular program, we will trace the origins of the instruments that make up the country sound and beyond, including sounds from eastern music traditions. Pick up a Passport at the beginning of the program to collect stamps as you learn about the international origins of the fiddle, guitar, banjo, ukulele, and more, then try your hand at all the instruments. Professional musicians will perform and offer guidance.

Presented in collaboration with the Chinese Arts Alliance.
