Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 3 pm

Instrument Petting Zoo begins at 2 pm

Richard Loheyde, conductor
Kymry Esainko, piano

Marcy Smothers, narrator

Roustabout Theater

A treat for the ears, Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals is a humorous journey into the animal kingdom from aquarium to aviary to jungle. Hear the familiar strains of “Flight of the Bumblebee,I Just Can’t Wait to be King” from The Lion King, and more, including a sing-along to “Old MacDonald.” Roustabout Theater’s dancers and singers add to the festivities. Marcy Smothers narrates and a special guest canine will make a suprise appearance to delight one and all!


Children are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite animal or to bring a favorite stuffed animal. Be prepared for a wild time!


This concert series is sponsored by Sonoma Paradiso Foundation
