Symphony of Northwest Arkansas Beyond Presents Carnival of the Animals (Family)

Symphony of Northwest Arkansas Beyond Presents Carnival of the Animals (Family) In-Person

The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas is proud to partner with the Springdale Public Library to present a woodwind quintet performance of the classic Carnival Of The Animals by Camille Saint-Saens with narration from the book by John Lithgow.  The unique personalities of a collection of animals are brought to life with timeless musical themes as the narration tells the story of a young student’s adventures on a school class trip to the Natural History Museum.   

This performance is part of the SoNA Beyond series, which showcases the vast spectrum of possibilities for classical music to reach audiences in new and innovative ways. SoNA Beyond presents a variety of concerts, programs, and other creative arts experiences that go beyond the symphony’s annual mainstage season of concerts. The series features symphony musicians in creative ways, including chamber music performances, outdoor educational concerts, community partnerships, groundbreaking contemporary experiences, and more.  

SoNA Beyond rethinks the boundaries of what a symphony can do to innovate the artform, include new voices, and immerse SoNA in the Northwest Arkansas community – to give audiences an expansive view of what classical music is and who it serves.
