Carnival of the Creatures

Sunday, October 26, 2008
The Music Center at Strathmore
Bethesda, MD

Just in time for Halloween – a children’s concert with a “scary” second half. The first half is all Saint-Saens, including “The Swan” danced by an 11-year-old ballerina. And we’ll have children reciting Ogden Nash’s ingenious animal poems, and the voodoo chant that inspired the black magic of Sensemaya.

Camille Saint-Saens: The Carnival of the Animals
Henry Cowell: The Banshee, The Tiger
Maurice Ravel: Scarbo
A scary improvisation
Silvestre Revueltas: Sensemayá

George Vatchnadze and Genadi Zagor, pianos
Maggie Yin Horowitz, ballerina
Amy Miller and Mona Lisa Arias, readers
Angel Gil-Ordóñez, conductor
