Lakes Area Music Festival – Carnival of the Animals
August 5, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
A special performance is presented each year just for youth and their families. This season’s concert will feature the captivating power of music and storytelling by a chamber orchestra of professional musicians led by Marlene Pauley.
The whole family will be blown away by Camille Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals and Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, hilariously narrated by Jeff Andrews. Both works offer cartoonish depictions of all sorts of beasts, and Peter and The Wolf spins a spellbinding tale with many classic characters. Before the concert, kids from the Lakes Area Music Festival’s Explore Music day camp will show off their new skills, and don’t forget to stick around after the show for our annual instrument petting zoo!
