The Carnival of the Animals
Thursday, November 8th, 7:00pm
Once upon a musical score, Camille Saint-Saƫns was stumped. He was composing a piece of music to entertain his friends. An idea twinkled in his mind. A musical fantasy. Animals in a parade. A tune beckoned. Camille inked in some quarter notes. The melody slipped away.
 I must let this idea bloom, Camille thought.

 He sat in the stuffed chair by the door and closed his eyes. Music and pictures swirled in his head: A tortoise waltzed. A peacock called. A lion stomped into a forest.
 Soon Camille was fast asleep. He dreamed of animals in the zoo. He dreamed of animals far away.
Once upon a time, he dreamed…
“Thanks to Elizabeth Varadan, you will roar with the lion, bound over clouds with the unicorn, dance with the tortoise, weep with the elephant, feel the friendship of a magical bird, know the enduring love of a swan…and more.  Best of all, you will enjoy the genuine magic of this carnival of creativity!”T. A. Barron, author of the Merlin Saga
