Students invited to explore band at ‘instrument petting zoo’

Fourth-graders in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 are invited to attend one of two “instrument petting zoos” hosted by elementary band directors on May 2 and 3.

At the events, students will be able to try different instruments with the help of staff members. Parents will have time to ask questions and get more information about fifth-grade band in District 191.

The instrument petting zoos are scheduled for:

  • Monday, May 2 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Vista View Elementary, 13109 County Road 5 in Burnsville, and
  • Tuesday, May 3 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Sioux Trail Elementary, 2801 River Hills Drive in Burnsville.

Later in May, elementary band directors will be meeting with interested fourth-grade students to help them pick an instrument that will best fit them.

In addition, fourth-grade students and parents are invited to attend upcoming fifth- and sixth-grade band performances at each elementary school in the district. Visit your neighborhood school’s website for dates and times.
