“The Carnival of the Animals” with Shangri La Gardens
April 12 - June 30
Join Shangri La Gardens, the Symphony of Southeast Texas, and the Lutcher Theater for a virtual learning opportunity where music meets nature. Featuring The Carnival of the Animals by Camille Saint-Saëns, we engage our active listening skills to find the similarities between the sounds of music and Mother Earth. Through this lesson we integrate the arts and sciences, discovering the many characters of nature and animals that can be replicated through music.
This two-part video series features a follow-along classroom booklet designed to keep your students engaged, while Maestro Tipton leads the Symphony of Southeast Texas through this exciting piece. Critical thinking skills will be utilized and practiced, as the animals featured in Camille Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals are compared to the animals found at Shangri La Gardens.
Both videos can be accessed below. We look forward to bringing the Symphony of Southeast Texas and Shangri La Gardens into your classroom!
