ISO Carnival of the Animals
Sunday, April 19
Hilbert Circle Theatre
The composition, originally named “Le Carnival”, was composed in 1886 by Camille Saint-Saëns, a French composer who had felt that the music was too impractical at the time. It wasn’t even until 1922 that the composition was first performed because Saint-Saëns would not have let it be published until after his death. “Le Carnival” was written with fourteen different movements for a symphony orchestra and included instrument sounds similar to that of different animals’.
Time: 3:00 P.M. Sunday April 19, 2015
Doors open at 2:00 for pre-concert activities with musicians
