A local musical nonprofit, Trio Oriens Jr., brought together 78 young artists from around the world to perform six movements from Saint Saëns' 1886 “The Carnival of the Animals.” Spearheaded by Evelyn Fung, a senior at Carnegie Vanguard High School, the performance features six musical movements. The full orchestral ensemble includes students from around the world playing piano, piccolo, oboe, violin and more, plus multiple visual artists. The performances include a traditional Taiwanese lion dance performed by students at the Taipei National University of the Arts, a Bharatanatyam Indian dance by the Shri Natraj School of Dance, ballet dancers and hand-drawn art. Every piece is introduced and concluded by poetry read in over 20 languages.
