The Santa Rosa Symphony and Pickle Family Circus will combine their talents to perform a musical and visual performance to Camille Saint Saens’ "Carnival of the Animals" and Benjamin Britten’s “The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra”. Sonoma County resident Marcy Smothers will narrate this wonderful afternoon of symphonic music and spectacular circus performances.
Over 100 children’s organizations in Sonoma and Napa counties have been invited to participate in a pre-concert music and art education program to enrich their appreciation and understanding of the concert. The WK Kellogg Foundation, the Furth Family Foundation and the Jackson Family Foundation make this educational outreach possible.
A limited amount of tickets will be available to the public. Tickets are $15 per person and can be purchased on-line at www.wellsfargocenterarts.com, or by calling 707-546-3600. Advance ticket purchase is recommended as this event typically sells out.
