Musical Petting Zoo

Miniature Mozarts and budding Bachs will be able to hear, see, touch and learn to make sound on musical instruments. Members of the Mobile Symphony Orchestra engage young children with a hands-on introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, including brass, wind, strings and percussion.

Instrument Exchange

Have a violin that’s collecting dust in the attic? What about a French horn that your teenager has long since outgrown? The MSO accepts new and gently-used instruments so that every child who desires to play a musical instrument has access to instruments. The MSO will pay to refurbish or repair all instruments that are still in good condition. Instruments can be dropped off at the Larkins Center at 257 Dauphin Street, or at M&S Music.
