CANCELLED - The Delaware County Symphony Presents ...

Presented by Delaware County Symphony at Neumann University

The ever popular and dramatic children’s story of Peter And The Wolf is a musical symphony composed for children of all ages by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev. It not only shares an instructive story about morality and problem solving it also teaches children in a wonderful way about the musical instruments of the symphony. The narrator in a dramatic and emotionally engaging manner shares this exciting children’s story while the instruments of the orchestra musically illustrates it.

Each character in the narrated story will be dramatically represented by a different instrument of the orchestra. For example, the bird will be played by the flute, the duck by the oboe, the cat by the clarinet, the Grandfather by the bassoon, the wolf by the French horns, Peter by the Strings and the roar of the hunters shotguns by the Kettle Drums!
Peter and the Wolf is an essential emotional, musical and cultural building block to every persons childhood.
