Babar is Coming…and Bringing a Petting Zoo!

This Sunday, March 3 at 4:00 PM, The Paramount will present Richmond Symphony’s The Story of Babar: The Little Elephant – With Really Inventive Stuff. The music by Francis Poulenc and narration with Really Inventive Stuff will make you feel like you are in the city of Paris with none other than the little elephant himself.

Before the Richmond Symphony takes the stage, there will be an “instrument petting zoo”.  This will begin in the lobby at 3:00PM and last until 3:50PM – just in time for the performance to start at 4:00PM. The “petting zoo” allows children of all ages to explore and have hands-on experience with a variety of instruments from the string, woodwind, and brass families! Members of the Charlottesville High School Orchestra and Band will demonstrate the instruments, answer questions, and the children will have an opportunity to try them out too!

We hope you will join us for this amazing performance, a unique concert experience you don’t want to miss. Buy your tickets now!
