Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra: making great music personal



family concert 1: carnival of the animals

  • Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals listen


Meet some of the wonderful members of the animal kingdom through Saint-Saëns’ famous Carnival of the Animals! Each musical movement captures the essence of a particular animal – will you recognize them all? This beloved work is an all-time favorite for introducing children to classical music. To add to the fun, LACO has invited budding authors from 826LA’s writing program to create the poems.
