At a press conference on March 12, Utah Governor Gary Herbert and the Utah Department of Health recommended limiting gatherings of groups of 100 or more for two weeks starting March 16. Per this recommendation, this event has been cancelled. We are currently evaluating whether any cancelled events can be rescheduled. Patrons who have purchased tickets for the March 17, 2020 Ogden performance of “Carnival of the Animals” should visit or call 801-399-9214 for ticketing options.

Introduce your little ones to the joys of the symphony with Carnival of the Animals, one of the most recognizable and beloved pieces by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Go on a journey through the animal kingdom from the graceful swan to the majestic lion. This staple will be the highlight of your children’s symphonic experience and is sure to delight all ages!
