Illinois Symphony Orchestra: Peter and the Wolf – Concerts for Kids 2016!

Peter and the Wolf – Concerts for Kids with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra
Friday, April 15, 2016
10:00 am (SOLD OUT) and 12:15 pm

The Illinois Symphony Orchestra led by Music Director Alastair Willis will be joined by the Magic Circle Mime Company to unit concert orchestra with visual theater for the classic children’s story of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. The Prokofiev classic becomes an exciting theatrical and musical experience in this fifty-minute production. The narration is replaced by movement and the concert hall becomes the scene of action as the conductor’s assistant, Peter, tries to capture a vicious wolf that threatens orchestra and audience alike. With the help of the musicians, good triumphs over evil and the concert ends in victorious celebration.
