A plethora of animals, feathered and furried alike, will come to life through music when the Bergmann Duo returns to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Marcel and Elizabeth Bergmann will perform Carnival of the Animals, a classical favourite that has entertained audiences young and old for more than 100 years, on Oct. 14 in the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre.

“We’re celebrating the fall season with a performance of Saint-Saens ever popular Carnival of the Animals, which remains one of the all-time classical favourites of audiences young and old,” Elizabeth said.

“I love the uniqueness of each concert experience – you never know what will happen exactly. We are communicating with an audience and bringing joy, excitement and inspiration through music,” she added about the concert series.

With complimentary coffee, tea and refreshments, the show is always a uniquely special experience that anyone can enjoy.

The afternoon will be filled with swans, elephants, tortoise, cuckoos, lions and kangaroos.
