The Perlman Music Program, which is currently celebrating its 20th year on the East End, will be hosting the annual Family Concert and Instrument “Petting Zoo” on Sunday, July 13, at 11:30 a.m.
The concert, which will be held at the Perlman Music Program’s Shelter Island Campus on Shore Road, is free and open to families with children of all ages. Merry Peckham, along with students, faculty, and fellows of the program, will introduce classical music and string instruments with musical skits and performance.
Following the concert, there will be an “Instrument Petting Zoo” for the younger audience members, where children can try out youth-sized instruments with the help of Perlman Music Program students. Children of all ages will also be given coloring books and juice boxes.
The Perlman Music Program also hosts “Works in Progress” Concerts throughout July and August. Performed by the students of the Summer Music Program, these classical concerts are free.
