Musical Instruments Petting Zoo

We strummed, we bowed, we chorded and dobro-ed.  Musicians Rebeccca PadulaClare Innes, and Anya Schwartz offered instruction on about a dozen different instruments, and we all took a turn at trying something new at Saturday’s Musical Instruments Petting Zoo.  We were having too much fun to take pictures during the event, but at least we caught Clare setting up and Anya getting a tip from Rebecca before the zoo gates opened.

We will walk for about an hour. Afterward, if you have time, you can stay for a potluck lunch. If you have even more time, you are invited to stay for our monthly collective meeting, 3-4 PM social time and 4-6 PM meeting.
