How many animals can the instruments of an orchestra conjure? The answer is: at least 14! Lions and kangaroos, elephants and swans—young listeners will hear them all as the majestic Philadelphia Orchestra turns Verizon Hall into a sumptuous zoo for this detailed tour of Saint-Saëns’s Carnival of the Animals.

Philadelphia Orchestra Family Concerts are funded in part by the Zisman Family Foundation.
