2018-2019 Outreach Schedule Coming Soon!



Join musicians of the Shenandoah Valley Bach Festival for an “Instrument Petting Zoo” at the Explore More Discovery Museum in downtown Harrisonburg. This event is part of the museum’s First Friday Free program, so there is no admission charge from 4 to 7pm.

Children will hear musicians perform and then get to try instruments like the violin, recorder, trombone, and tambourine. There will also be two instrument making stations and other fun activities, not to mention all of the wonderful permanent exhibits!
