Encounter kangaroos, elephants, lions, cuckoos, donkeys, swans, and more as Andrés Orozco-Estrada leads Saint-Saëns’s beloved musical menagerie, The Carnival of the Animals. Brimming with color and humor, and filled with music audiences will recognize, this is one of the most purely fun works ever composed. This presentation of Saint-Saëns’s original scoring for two pianos and orchestra highlights Principal Keyboardist Scott Holshouser, together with the illustrious Emanuel Ax. Each concert showcases a different lineup of solo performances by orchestra musicians.

The Saturday performance will be available to livestream.
