Great for All Ages!
Looking for something enjoyable for your kids? Look no further than the Winston-Salem Symphony’s Discovery Concerts for Kids! Designed to entertain and delight young people, these concerts are affordable, accessible, and fun and are a wonderful way to introduce classical music to kids of all ages. The Symphony works hard to keep the Discovery concerts entertaining and they include plenty of chances for wiggly kids to move in their seats in time to the music. The concerts are about one hour long, perfect for short attention spans.
Join the Symphony on Sunday April 7, for a concert featuring Sergei Prokofiev’s beloved children’s classic Peter and the Wolf. Under the baton of Assistant Conductor Jessica Morel, the fabulous Winston-Salem Symphony musicians, along with narrator Estelle Bajou and the Winston-Salem Festival Ballet, will present the timeless tale of a brave boy, his grandpa, and their quirky animal companions. Each character is represented by a different instrument and melody, from the bird’s flourishing flute to the grandpa’s grumpy bassoon. The concert will open with a piece entitled The Wild Woods by Viet Cuong. Commissioned for the Winston-Salem Symphony, The Wild Woods is a prologue to the Peter and the Wolf story, set the night before the events of Prokofiev’s piece. It presents the scene from the grandfather’s perspective.
The concert will take place at Brendle Recital Hall on the Campus of Wake Forest University. There will be two shows, one at 2 p.m. and one at 4 p.m. Between the two concerts, beginning at 3 p.m., a variety of child-friendly activities will take place in the lobby. Attendees can take part in a variety of hands on activities, arts and crafts, and more! They also will be able to hold, play, and learn about instruments at an instrument petting zoo. Tickets are $18 for adults and $7 for children, call 336.464.0145 or visit WSsymphony.org.
