Instrument Petting Zoo provides youth and the young at heart with a hands-on opportunity to try a variety of orchestral instruments. IPZ is part of the pre-concert activities at Eugene Symphony's annual free outdoor summer concert. The program is also hosted periodically at local venues with an educational presentation by Eugene Symphony musicians. 

Stay tuned for upcoming Instrument Petting Zoo events!
