If you miss Sayon while he is in Guinea you can always go see him at the Montshire Museum in Norwich…

Yes! Sayon is part of the Making Music exhibit up at the Montshire right now for those who missed the exhibit the first time around. You’ll feel like you’re sitting in class with him! Making Music is a hands-on experience with all kinds of instruments. We learned a lot, had fun and highly recommend it for all ages.

The museum is open daily, 10am to 5pm, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas and is located at One Montshire Road, Norwich VT 05055.
