My favorite type of petting zoo is an instrument petting zoo. First off, I don’t have to worry about allergies, and more importantly, I don’t have to listen to kids asking, “Can we get a kitten/ rabbit/pony/Gila monster?” while they lie about how they’ll take care of it and walk it and wash it, just like they promised to do with the dog. (Yes, and we all know how well that turned out.)
So imagine my delight upon learning the Camellia Symphony Orchestra is presenting a family concert in the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria on Sunday, March 8th. The Instrument Petting Zoo starts at 1 pm with the concert following at 2 pm. Guest Conductor Peter Nowlen teams up with Richard Bay’s Puppet Theater to present a performance of Peter and the Wolf. Street parking is free on Sundays. While free parking is always a blessed event, unless you plan to buy something in order to park in the mall’s garage, please come early.
