Overview

This program is all about the imaginative story-telling power of music. Peter and the Wolf is an amazing way for families to be immersed in an adventure brought to life by music and narration while also learning about the orchestral sound and instruments. But before getting to this main event which tells a literal story, we build our way there with two shorter pieces of music just as vivid and both engaging with the imagery of the ocean. Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture is inspired by and depicts the crashing ocean waves in the Fingal's Cave. And the orchestral arrangement of Sobre las Olas 'over the waves' brings the internationally famous and popular Mexican song by Juventino Rosas to our audiences.
