Lions. Tigers. And Bears – oh my!
All three “animal” species and more ran wild Sunday afternoon at the Redlands Symphony’s annual OrKIDstra Family Concert and Petting Zoo held at the Memorial Chapel at the University of Redlands.
Attended the concert last Saturday evening and it was an amazing performance. Dr. Wilson as always got the absolute best from the orchestra, I am so impressed with the orchestra members and how they respond to Dr. Wilson’s direction. The soloist was stunning. So glad to be there and will see you at the next concert!
