One of the great zoological works in the orchestral canon, Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns includes humorous depictions of elephants, donkeys, lions, hens, roosters, tortoises, kangaroos, and the famous “swan” for solo cello. This concert, presented by the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra, also features two Russian masterworks: Shostakovich’s Festive Overture and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
