The  Folsom Lake Symphony is hosting it annual family concert and musical instrument “petting zoo” event known as, Construction Zone: Musicians at Work this Saturday at the Harris Center for the Arts.

The post-concert instrument “petting zoo” will return bigger than ever with instrument stations in the lobby, Stage 2 and Stage 3. Children will have hands-on experience trying out various instruments of the orchestra guided by symphony members.
