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.

Children and parents are invited to come dressed in their most ferocious or most beautiful animal costume and enjoy pre-concert activities that begin at 2pm in the Capitol Theatre lobby. Activities include:

  • 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
  • Musical tattoos
  • Meet the CSO musicians
  • Meet Mr. Sunny from Sunny 95

The Columbus Symphony's Concerts for Kids presents Carnival of the Animals at the Capitol Theatre (77 S. High St.) on Sunday, April 6, at 3pm. Recommended for ages 3-10, the concert will last approximately one hour. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children, and can be purchased at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E.
