WindSync Presents: Carnival of the Animals

WindSync Presents: Carnival of the Animals

Presented by Miller Theatre Advisory Board and WindSync at Miller Outdoor Theatre

WindSync presents a colorful evening featuring the five wind instruments of the orchestra in collaboration with concert pianist and University of Houston faculty member Andrew Staupe.

The highlight of the evening is a brand-new reimagining of the Saint-Saëns classic Carnival of the Animals. Widely known from the film Fantasia 2000, Carnival of the Animals is a celebratory piece depicting zoo animals like the elephant, the lion, and the swan, plus some humorous specimens like the pianists and the people with long ears.

The program also includes Ludwig Thuille’s lush, romantic Sextet for in B-flat Major, Op. 6, and a whirlwind version of the Blue Danube waltz for solo piano
