Everyone loves the coming of spring after a long winter, including all the animals! Celebrate the beginning of this wonderful season with Saint-Saëns’s humourous and fun musical suite The Carnival of the Animals. Each movement represents a different animal played by instruments in the orchestra.

Pre-concert activities are free with ticket purchase!

Doors open at 1:30 pm for fun and interactive pre-concert activities.  Come meet KWS musicians as they give voice to the different animals at the Carnival.

Please Note: All pre-concert activities are available pending safety protocols at the venue.

Following the Government of Ontario’s announcements on December 15th and 17th, all KWS performances at Centre In The Square have been reduced to a 50% capacity, with non-socially distanced seating.
