Fur, Feathers and Flutes

We all know that Classical music can calm us - and our pets! We also know that there's a special connection we have with our pets. Do our pets have a special connection with Classical music? We think so! On Fur, Feathers and Flutes, you'll hear stories of composers who loved their pets along with music inspired by their furry friends. You'll also meet an opera-loving parrot, curious Classical-loving cats, and you'll hear how Classical music helps train canines, as we celebrate the love we have for our special companions and their connection to music on Fur, Feathers and Flutes!

Encore from May 2024
