Presented by Houston Symphony at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, Houston TX

Mar 18 - 20 2022
Andrés Conducts The Carnival of the Animals

Encounter kangaroos, elephants, lions, cuckoos, donkeys, swans, and more as Andrés Orozco-Estrada leads Saint-Saëns’s beloved musical menagerie, The Carnival of the Animals. Brimming with color and humor, and filled with music you’ll recognize, this is one of the most purely fun works ever composed. This presentation of Saint-Saëns’s original scoring for two pianos and orchestra highlights our superb Principal Keyboardist Scott Holshouser, together with the illustrious Emanuel Ax.
