Carnival of the Animals

Enjoy a menagerie of musical storytelling and interactive art-making with the Curtis Institute of Music and Enchantment Theatre Company. Families are invited to explore Saint-Saëns’s suite, The Carnival of the Animals, as two Curtis pianists provide musical portraits of lions, kangaroos, elephants, and other favorite creatures; and Philadelphia’s celebrated Enchantment Theatre Company narrates in fanciful detail. Children can create their own animal-inspired artwork during the performance which will be featured alongside artwork by students from local schools.

Awakening a sense of wonder in listeners ages 5 to 12, Curtis Family Concerts share music with young audiences through interactive, educational presentations. These hour-long performances take place in a friendly setting, uniting entertainment with exploration.
