About the Concert

Our Fifth Season concludes with a field trip to the zoo! Art song composers have looked to the animal kingdom for creative inspiration in their music for generations. We'll present a menagerie of animal-inspired songs by Schubert, Ravel, Tchaikovsky, Libby Larsen, Gwyneth Walker, and Richard Pearson Thomas. Join us as we imagine what life must be like as another creature in What a Zoo!
