The Animated Orchestra

It’s time to use your imagination and go on an adventure with the TSO! The perfect concert for the daydreamer in all of us, The Animated Orchestra introduces us to a curious and creative ferret named Ari who leads the audience on a journey through which we discover the magic of music and the orchestra. Be a part of creating the story with narrator Greg Smith and the TSO. Also, enjoy orchestral favourites with the TSO that spark your imagination, including an audience singalong! (Pictured: Ari the Ferret by Thomas Novotny)
