Come with us to the Big Top to meet the Buzz Brass quintet as they prepare to perform the soundtrack for the circus. But wait! Where are the circus performers? Jugglers, magicians, tightrope walkers, sword swallowers, lion tamers, and human cannonballs are sure to bedazzle one and all, but they’re nowhere in sight! They’ve deserted the circus, leaving our puzzled musicians to their fate!

Well, the show must go on, so our merry band of musicians takes on the circus performers’ roles – with hilarious results. And all without saying a single word!

Note: This show is performed with music and mime only – no French or English dialogue.


Come early!

Join us for 30 minutes prior to each concert for free activities presented by Ottawa Suzuki Strings and Music for Young Children!
