Great musical composition (Camille Saint-Saens...I recognized two pieces!), lovely piano-playing, and clever poet (Jack Prelutsky). Nice coupling of the music with the readings...Mr. Prelutsky is a good orator. My kids appreciated the event, but I did even more so!

Goldstar advertised this concert as being intended for ages 1-10. This was untrue as I discovered later and resulted in a terrible experience with my 2 year old. The Seattle Chamber Society actually designed it for 5-10 and it is clearly posted...continued
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,
The irritating donkeys
That prattle on and on.
You’ll meet a tortoise, and some fish
With undulating fins.
Welcome to our carnival —
The music now begins._
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.
