A Carnival of Animals, A Free Family Concert

A beloved Worcester tradition, the Worcester Chamber Music Society annual free family concert brings music to life through music and dance. John Deak’s “Eeyore Has A Birthday” is a fun telling of grumpy, old Eeyore. The Hanover Theatre Conservatory Youth Ballet Company joins WCMS musicians on stage for Saint-Saen’s “Carnival of the Animals.” The story-telling through music and dance together creates a memorable experience for the entire family.

Neighborhood Strings, our inner-city strings youth program, will open the concert.
