Join us for a delightful performance of magical chamber music for little ears performed by three exceptional musicians.
Filled with fantastic music by well-known classical composers including Bach, Bartok, Ravel, Copland and more played on cello, violin and viola, Smile will take you on a delightful musical adventure to help Augustus the Tiger find his smile again.
