SAINT-SAËNS Carnival of the Animals
POULENC The Story of Babar, the Little Elephant

This performance deftly introduces little ones to the joys of the orchestra with Carnival of the Animals, one of the best-known pieces by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, with each movement depicting a different animal from the royal lion to the graceful swan. In The Story of Babar, Jean de Brunhoff’s popular children’s story of one little elephant’s epic rise from rags to riches is eloquently set to music by Francis Poulenc, truly a fantastic family experience for all ages.
