Conducted by HSO Assistant Conductor Adam Boyles and hosted by radio personality Renee DiNino, with Creative Direction by the legendary Broadway animal trainer Bill Berloni and vocals by Shanice Williams, the HSO brings together music and mutts like you’ve never seen before. On-stage action will include incredible canine performers, agility and freestyle demonstrations, filmed sequences, our friends from the Connecticut Humane Society sharing heartwarming stories of our unique bond with pups – all set to music inspired by our very special love of dogs! Also featuring the incredible story of Sgt. Stubby, a stray mutt from New Haven, CT, who was recruited by the Army, participated in 17 WWI battles, saved countless lives and met three U.S. Presidents!
Plus, a special appearance by Fidelco dogs – and UConn’s Jonathan the Husky!
