[Apr. 22 SUN. 2pm, Sherwood Community Center, Fairfax, VA]
The Washington Chamber Orchestra under the direction of its artistic director Jun Kim will perform a Special Children's Concert "THE CARNIVAL of the ANIMALS" by Camille Saint-Saëns, Narrator is Marsha Kelly of the Irish group Síor-Óg and Bora Lee & Yoahn Kwon will be the guest pianists.
“The Carnival of Animals” is a classic piece for children in 14 movements that represent different animals — a turtle, hens and roosters, elephants, fish, kangaroos, and more - and it is performed widely as it is regarded as one of the great pieces to introduce classical music to children. WCO will open the concert with another audience favorite "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" by W.A. Mozart.
The concert is sponsored by the City of Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts Festival and made possible by a grant from the City’s Commission on the Arts.
