It’s a zoological musical, featuring a fully orchestrated setting of Saint-Saëns’ classic score, along with engaging songs including “Talk to the Animals” and “Kokowanda Bay.” This imaginative musical journey through the animal kingdom will resonate with any young listener who’s enjoyed the classic children’s book Are You My Mother? When a baby swan is separated from her mother, she must team up with a ragtag group of singing and dancing animals in hopes of making it safely to Kokowanda Bay.

PERFORMERS: Nashville Symphony | Nathan Aspinall, conductor

In pre-historic times, strange creatures walked the planet. These were the ancient ancestors of musical instruments that inspired melodious makers in brass and wood to create the instruments we see in the orchestra today.

Join on a journey into the times When Instruments Roamed the Earth®!

Filled with laughs, surprises, multi-media projection, and on-stage action, the symphony will present the perfect all-ages introduction to the exciting sounds, people, and experience of a symphony orchestra concert.

Hear the hilarious “research” of paleo-musicologist, Sir Humphrey Treble-Clef, who believes that our modern instruments are actually the descendants of giant, dinosaur-like creatures like you’ve never seen before. These are strange creatures that exist in the hot, mysterious, swampy jungles of Sir Humphrey’s unusual imagination.

Most will not believe a man who tried to prove that ancient humans made music by hitting themselves on the head with rocks; but everyone will smile, laugh, and be in awe of the symphonic interpretations of Sir Humphrey’s wild theories, featuring all the instruments of the orchestra.
