Carnival of the Animals

Roger Kalia, conductor
Bob Brown Puppets
Pacific Symphony


Join in the fun at the interactive Musical Carnival in the concert hall lobby, where kids can test drive a musical instrument, meet the performers, and enjoy musical arts and crafts activities themed to the morning's concert. Activities begins at 9 a.m. for 10 a.m. concertgoers and 12:15 p.m. for 11:30 a.m. concertgoers.

Pacific Symphony brings a zoo to musical life with the Bob Brown Puppets and a narrator to tell the story. Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals” features each animal in its own descriptive song, from the royal march of the stately lions, to hippity-hopping kangaroos, lumbering elephants, a gracefully swimming swan and more.
