CET Screennshot for the animals program

"Carnival of the Animals: Remix" makes its television premier this weekend (April 1 & 2). Provided by CETconnect.

This weekend, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra will take children and their elders around the world, in a way that residents of Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS) communities and their grandchildren are sure to enjoy.

The program will introduce us to animals on all our planet's seven continents, and learn about the art and musical styles of those areas.

Worldwide carnival of animals and music

CET, Cincinnati's educational television, will present "Carnival of the Animals: Remix," a locally created production in a partnership with the chamber orchestra and Aliven Arts. It will make its television premier Saturday (April 1) at 7 p.m., with an encore performance Sunday (April 2) at 1 p.m. and Sunday, April 9 at 9 p.m. on CET Arts.

It is designed for children 3-8 and updates the magical work that Camille Saint-Saëns composed way back in 1886.

We'll visit the United States, Australia, Thailand, China, France, South Africa, Antartica, Trinidad & Tobago, and South America.

This musical production was conceived by Eckart Preu, the Music Director and Conductor of the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra as a way to “update” and amplify the already popular “Carnival of the Animals." Additional orchestral music was composed/arranged by Nami Melumad and included guest artists also performing folk and original music.
