Community Program

Ages 3 & Up, with Adult. Free with Museum Admission.*

Have you met a snail with an “itchy foot” who longs to see the world? Listen to principal bass Peter Spaar, from Charlottesville Symphony, as he creates the sound of a whale who carries the snail on far-away adventures using the tip of his tail during a musical reading of The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson, then try to make your own sounds on different string instruments in a hands-on instrument petting zoo.
