Join us Sunday, July 25 for a family concert in partnership with the Blank Park Zoo!

Tune in as DMSO musicians perform throughout the Blank Park Zoo, highlighting different exhibits and checking in on the animals. You'll hear violinist Yi-Miao Huang performing Bach and Dvorak, as well as fun and familiar songs from our double reed trio, Jennifer Wohlenhaus, Susan Odem, & Benjamin Holthaus. Plus, the Blank Park Zoo's education team will drop in to teach us about the differences between apes & monkeys.
