It’s a great feeling to know you’ve impacted the life of a budding musician! The following was submitted by the parent of one of our petting zoo attendees. Looks like we got Olivia hooked!
This is long overdue, but I wanted to thank you for the instrument petting zoo that was held in November. My 7 year old daughter was fascinated by the violin and we began lessons last December. The opportunity you provided made an impact that we as family will never forget. There are days when we have to tell her that she’s practicing too much! The violin has become an important part of our lives because of the petting zoo![Olivia] tells everyone she meets that she plays the violin. We recently attended the KC Symphony performance for Harry Potter and afterward she talked about how each violinist had their own way of playing and holding their violin. I think she stared at the musicians the whole time instead of watching the movie! Music education is vital to our society and I’m happy that my husband and I can give Olivia this opportunity. – Lucinda Adams
