[ARCHIVED] Canton Farmers Market To Present “Taste of Music” Featuring Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra

The Canton Farmers Market is partnering with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) to present a “Taste of Music,” featuring a small ensemble performance, as well as an Instrument Petting Zoo at the Market on Sunday, August 21, 2016.

This special program, funded by the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan, was designed by the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra to move great music out of the concert hall and into the community at area farmers markets in Washtenaw, Wayne, Oakland, and Livingston counties.

A special A2SO ensemble performance will be held as 11:00 a.m. Throughout the Market day, an A2SO Instrument Petting Zoo will also be held. Please note that instrument petting zoos may stop during performances and will resume shortly thereafter.

Children of all ages and children at heart will have the opportunity to try out real violins, cellos, trumpets and clarinets. Child-sized instruments, along with trained “zookeepers” ensure that even the smallest child will have a successful first instrumental experience.

The A2SO will also offer complementary concert tickets for the 2016-17 concert season to market customers who use food assistance programs. For additional information about the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra’s “Taste of Music”, please call (734) 994-4801 or visit

The Canton Farmers Market is currently held every Sunday, now through October 16, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Preservation Park, located at 500 N. Ridge Road. These open-air markets are held rain or shine and feature a variety of local goods for sale, weekly kids’ crafts and activities, live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, and more.
