Never miss a surprise or a concert!

APYO Instrument Petting Zoo at Crystal Bridges Garden Party

Listening is fun. Playing is even more fun!


We brought back our wildly popular instrument petting zoo at the 2022 Crystal Bridges Garden Party! Kids had a chance to touch and play real orchestral instruments, all under the guidance of trained APYO staff. This event was presented as a collaboration with the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
