The Raritan Valley Symphonic Band invites kids of all ages to a series of four virtual “Musical Instrument Petting Zoom” presentations on Sunday afternoons @ 2 pm during February. Admission is free and each 30 minute virtual session will feature one or more wind ensemble instruments:
February 7 – Trombones
February 14 – Flutes
February 21 – Trumpets & French Horns
February 28 – Tubas & Euphoniums
Students will receive an introduction to the instrument and its history, an explanation of the various parts of the instrument (e.g., keys, valves, tubes), brief solo and group performances featuring the instrument, and more. Each session will conclude with a live Q&A period.
These virtual presentations are offered this year instead of the band’s highly popular Children’s Concert, which usually features performances of light music followed by a live “instrument petting zoo”.
