2:30pm Children’s Pre-Concert Fun
This year’s HSO Family Concert features Prokofiev’s enchanting musical tale, Peter and the Wolf. Suitable for children of all ages, this performance continues our longstanding tradition of presenting Family Concerts which are entertaining and educational for all ages. Don’t miss this lively Sunday afternoon’s entertainment for all the family!
Prokofiev composed Peter and the Wolf in 1936 with the aim of cultivating musical tastes in young children. To this day, it remains arguably the most popular children’s work in the classical orchestral repertoire. Featuring a chamber orchestra in which various solo instruments represent the story’s human and animal characters, it is not only a wonderful demonstration of the instruments of the orchestra, but also a delightful classic that brings joy to audiences of all ages.
