Very cool!!  Instrument Zoo - We had an instrument petting zoo that used to come to the schools.

Here is an experience - but families have to buy the tickets. http://www.indyartsguide.org/e.....etting_Zoo

I guess it comes down to volunteers and funds to keep the instruments functioning.

Violinist start date -  May 2013  

Fiddler start date - May 2014

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius.  BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.
