Go Wild with CSO's 'Concert for Kids', Featuring CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS, 4/6
Columbus, Ohio -- As part of the CSO's Concerts for Kids series, conductor Albert-George Schram and the Columbus Symphony, with assistance from the BalletMet Dance Academy Performance Ensemble, will perform Carnival of the Animals. Even the composer, Camille Saint-Saëns, referred to the work as "such fun" as each movement humorously depicts a member of the animal kingdom.

- Meet animal visitors from the Columbus Zoo
- See and play instruments from Music & Arts Centers and The Loft Violin Shop
- Harp "Petting Zoo" courtesy of the studio of CSO harpist Jude Mollenhauer
- Instruments and musical fun with WeJoySing
- Crafts with the Columbus Museum of Art
