The Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra and CET are bringing Camille Saint-Saëns’ magical and engaging work Carnival of the Animals into today’s world. Designed for children ages 3-8, the program will take listeners through a journey around the world, visiting all 7 continents and the animals and musical styles of each region. Infusing a variety of multi-dimensional art forms and musical styles – as well as introducing a lineup of new animal characters – will bring a modern twist to this classic in a new arrangement for chamber orchestra, piano, and local and international guest artists.

In honor of Barbara Bushman.
