The Eighth Note program is full of information and activities to help audience members get the most out of each Family Concert. It includes interviews with guest artists and musicians, activities, puzzles, and more.
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.
