Description

Welcome to our carnival,

Where birds and beasts and such

Behave a lot like people do,

At times a bit too much.

You’ll meet the regal lion

And the captivating swan,

by Jack Prelutsky

The concert runs approximately one hour, with no intermission.

All ages are welcome, but the program is geared to those ages 1-5.
