These concerts are geared for kids ages 3 and up, and provide a wonderful introduction to the symphony – without the price tag. This particular performance sends you on a musical safari with Saint-Saëns’ classic children’s piece, ‘The Carnival of the Animals.’ The concert is conducted by the PSO’s very own Lawrence Loh, and there are two performance times to choose from. Although the concert itself is free, reservations are required.
