Free with museum admission.
The HSO Family Series comes to the New Britain Museum of American Art! This special Mother’s Day event features Hartford Symphony Orchestra musicians in an immersive presentation for families, with our Instrument Petting Zoo from 1-3 PM and a performance by the HSO Jazz Quartet from 3-4 PM. The Instrument Petting Zoo is a musical laboratory that gives children the opportunity to see, hear, touch, and play! Kids have a blast learning how playing a musical instrument is a whole-body experience, and feeling each instrument’s vibrations humming differently from head to toe. The performance following will give families an opportunity to see some of the instruments they’ve just tried right up close, being performed by the HSO pros in a small ensemble setting.
