When summer arrives, MacPhail's Musical Trolley takes a special trip to the Animal Fair! "Carnival of the Animals," by Camille Saint-Saens, sets the stage for a parade of musical magic led by bears, insects, monkeys, alligators, kangaroos, turtles and more. You'll move to the magic drum, play a variety of musical instruments and, with the help of your animal friends, discover the musical concepts of fast and slow, piano and forte, legato and staccato and steady beat.
Through hands-on experiences, young children build musical foundations that prepare them for future music learning and school readiness skills! MacPhail’s engaging and original “integrated arts” early childhood music curriculum, is taught by MacPhail-trained specialists and features songs, rhymes, stories, dance, instrument exploration and visual art creation.
