Sunday, April 29, 3 pm concert at the Schuster Center features a musical menagerie of burros, bears, panthers, cats, and other animals

On Sunday, April 29 at 3 pm in the Schuster Center, guest pianist Tiraje Ruckman and David L. Pierson Young Musicians Concerto Competition winner pianist Tiffany Woo join Music Director Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for an afternoon of furry musical fun.

Panthers and horses and bears…oh my! Yes, and burros, cats, and various other animals, too. The DPO explores the animal kingdom as it proudly presents an afternoon of complete works (and some excerpts) all about animals. There’s Haydn’s bear, Copland’s cat, Ferde Grofe’s burro, Leroy Anderson’s horse and waltzing cat, Johann Strauss Jr’s panther, and Henry Mancini’s famous Pink Panther. And guest pianists Tiraje Ruckman and Tiffany Woo present a whole carnival full of Saint-Saëns’ famous animals. There’s even an Old MacDonald sing-along.

So, bring the whole family for an event full of furry fun!

Tickets $5 – 13.50
