Calling all aspiring young zoologists! We’ll need your help to find and determine the many characteristics of the musical animals in our carnival. Music to be provided by the San Antonio Symphony in partnership with Musical Arts Center of San Antonio (MACSA) and the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, whose witty Carnival brings out the animal sounds of the orchestra. Be sure to enter the COTA Poetry Contest in conjunction with this program; winners will have an opportunity to present an oral reading of their original works on stage at the concert!
