Mockingbird Foundation Grant

Young Tradition Vermont was one of just a few successful applicants, and one of only three organizations in which the foundation doubled the amount requested.

The Instrument Petting Zoo is a collection of mostly stringed instruments that are installed at public and private schools, farmer’s markets, festivals, parks and recreation programs, music camps and special events with the purpose of letting people play them. All the instruments have signs that say, “please touch”. The most recent installations have been at Vermont Children’s Hospital and at Burlington’s First Night.
