The Renaissance Theatre presented its second Teddy Bear Concert of the season, "Carnival of the Animals," Sunday afternoon.

Renaissance Theatre director of operations, Chelsie Thompson, said the interactive concert featured classical music geared towards students in pre-school through second grade.

"Hearing music at a young age is valuable for students and we find students are not oftened exposed to that as much as they should be. We really love seeing young people getting excited about music and it aids in a lot of ways in their development," Thompson said.

The original script for the concert was written by Renaissance Artistic director Michael Thomas, accompanied by the classic "Carnival of the Animals" music by French composer Camille Saint-Saens.
 

The concert is part of the Mechanics Bank Education Series.

 Additional funding for the concert was provided by the Women's Guild of the Mansfield Symphony.
