In conjunction with the Virginia Film Festival’s Family Day, Charlottesville Symphony members perform an interactive concert in the Culbreth Auditorium prior to the 10:00am screening of the Family Day Featured Film, introducing musical themes from the movie.

After the film, faculty, student and community members of the Charlottesville Symphony will host a Musical Instrument Petting Zoo in the Helms Theater. Children of all ages and their parents are invited to explore musical instruments from the string, woodwind, brass and percussion families.  Members of the orchestra will demonstrate the instruments and answer questions about them.  Children and their parents will have the opportunity to try each of the instruments, too.
