Mardi Gras Menagerie!

Mardi Gras Menagerie!

February 18, 2017, 11:30 am at Jones Hall

Event date: 2/18/2017 11:30 AM Add to iCalendar

Presented by the Houston Symphony

It’s a jazzy, fun-filled celebration of Mardi Gras with a menagerie of friends from the animal kingdom! Joining the jubilee is Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals including elephants, kangaroos and feathery friends vividly brought to life by the orchestra, student poetry and duo pianists. Associate Conductor Robert Franz is also taking us on an icy, dancing excursion with music from Happy Feet, featuring his party-pal penguin Mumble. Come dressed as your favorite animal and get ready to party symphony-style!

David Rainey, a Resident Artist from the Alley Theatre, will be our narrator for the Carnival of the Animals poetry that was written (based on each movement) by second grade students at Patterson Dual Language Literature Magnet School in Houston ISD.
