The Huntsville Symphony Orchestra, in conjunction with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Guild, presents the annual Young People’s Concerts to area fourth-graders, allowing them to explore a true symphony concert programmed just for them at no cost.

In February 2021, the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra was thrilled to offer a virtual edition of our Young People’s Concert! This allowed fourth-grade classes across North Alabama to have an easy, no-fuss classroom screening of the HSO’s performance of Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Carnival of the Animals.”

One of the most beloved of compositions for children, “Carnival of the Animals” is a fun and memorable way to teach students about the instruments of the orchestra. To help us bring the story to life, the HSO was joined by puppets of the Huntsville M.E.T. and Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater.
