Musical Zoo

  • Timberline Church 2908 S Timberline Rd Fort Collins CO 80525 (map)

Bel Canto and Cantare will perform during the day of fun at the Fort Collins Symphony’s Musical Zoo. This musical adventure is especially designed for children 3-12 years old and their families. It includes an instrument “petting zoo” where children can try out instruments and performances by several student ensembles. The finale program will be Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”, performed by the Fort Collins Symphony with dancers from Canyon Concert Ballet.This beloved fable, combining symphony, dance and theatrical narration is often a child’s first contact with orchestral music and ballet, and provides a never forgotten experience. Peter, the wolf, the duck, the cat and other characters are magically represented by individual instruments and dancers of  the Fort Collin’s own Canyon Concert Ballet. This afternoon of musical enjoyment provides a fun family experience.

Our choirs will perform in the East Auditorium at the start of the program.
