Family Concert: Carnival of the Animals

Sunday, 21 May 2023, 12.30pm

Packed with humour and mischievous fun, Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals is adored by children and grown-ups the world over.

The brilliant Irish Chamber Orchestra, performing for the first time in Co. Wicklow, will be on hand to bring all the various animals to life, with the help of Soo-Jung Ann and Fiachra Garvey fighting it out on two grand pianos. From the Tortoise’s lumbering Can-Can, to crazy Wild Donkeys and the graceful Swan, music and animal-lovers of all ages will be in for a fantastical musical treat!

Pre-concert event at Russborough House:
Animal Mask-making workshops for 4-12 year olds
Sunday 21 May 10-11am & 11am-12pm

Make your very own carnival animal mask to wear to the concert with the help of illustrator Paula McGloin. Workshop places are limited so be sure book in advance when booking your concert ticket!
