Have you ever noticed the wonderful variety of animals in the world? With so many different creatures, you might think that the Earth would be noisy, but it’s not. Why? To find out, join us for this wildly unique concert! We’ll be exploring the musical side of animal sounds, and the animal side of musical sounds. We’ll even journey into a world where animals can play music!
Zoophony can be enjoyed by your entire family, but it was especially designed for kids aged five to nine. It is 50 minutes in length. The concert features 21 TSO musicians, a tower of giraffes, a troop of gorillas, a gaggle of geese, and many, many other Toronto Zoo animals.
