The Norwalk Symphony Orchestra's (Not) Just For Kids program is a lively, fun and interactive program designed to be educational as well as entertaining. Members of the orchestra demonstrate their instruments, play for the children and answer questions in hour-long presentations. 

Throughout the season, presentations are made for all instrument families: strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. All programs end with attendees having a chance to hold and try to play a beginning-level instrument in the “Petting Zoo."

During Saturday's presentation, members of the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra will perform and introduce children to the stringed instrument family. The youngsters will be given an opportunity to hold and play the instruments during the "petting zoo" portion of the program. Children ages 6 to 11 with parents are invited.
