What does a Japanese bamboo flute have to do with classical music? Musical colors come alive through the breathy sounds of the shakuhachi flute and energetic hammering of a gamelan band. Learn how these Eastern instruments influenced Debussy and Messiaen - you might even get to dance in your seat! Pre-concert activities begin at 10am in the Grand Lobby.
The Orchestra Zoo, an interactive exploration for children and their parents to interact with and touch the instruments of the orchestra, is sponsored by KING FM.
