Friends of the Symphony will host Musical Zoo 2020 on Sunday, March 1, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Fort Collins Timberline Church. This exciting program of musical education and fun is designed especially for children 3-12 years of age and their families.
The annual event features an instrument “Petting Zoo” wherein children observe, hold and “play” a variety of orchestral instruments between 2:00 and 3:40 p.m. Short performances of instrumental and choral works will be performed by youth ensembles, also at 2:00 and 3:40 pm. Guests can move about in order to attend both events. The Grand Finale takes place in the Main Auditorium from 3:45 to 4:30 p.m., with the Fort Collins Symphony Orchestra performing 2 short works by Russell Peck. Playing with Style delightfully shows off various instruments in the orchestra; Jack and Jill on Bunker Hill, is a patriotic thriller. Guest Conductor Lawrence Golan will be joined by Scott Wheeler as narrator. Dance will be provided by the Canyon Concert Ballet.
