Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Musical Carnival of Animals

Carnival of the Animals – FREE Family Concert

Huntsville M.E.T., puppetry

Among the most beloved of children’s pieces for the orchestra, Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals presents the double bass as an elephant, the clarinet as a cuckoo, and an ensemble of shimmering strings and undulating pianos as an aquarium brimming with colorful fish. It’s a marvelous way to introduce young people to the instruments of the orchestra when paired with the dazzling, larger-than-life puppetry of Huntsville M.E.T. Best of all, this concert and the fun-filled morning activities which precede it are FREE to your family and to the whole community.
