A Musical Zoo
The Milligan Orchestra will take you on a zoological journey through centuries of music inspired by the animal kingdom. Featured repertoire includes the Overture from The Thieving Magpie by Rossini, “The Waltzing Cat” by Leroy Anderson, “The Red Pony” by Aaron Copland, in addition to excerpts from Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns and Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. Local elementary students will create art pieces of the animals depicted as part of educational outreach. All artwork will be on display in Seeger Chapel’s lobby during the concert.
