Annual Free Family Concert

Page 11 Family Concert


Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf

The musical fairy tale of the little boy who, with the help of a bird, a duck and a cat, outsmarted the big, bad wolf, is a favorite introduction to classical music for kids of all ages. WCMS musicians will perform the piece with narrator extraordinaire Rohan Gregory. In conjunction with Youth Art Month, drawings created by students from Worcester’s Chandler Magnet School will be projected above the musicians to complement the storytelling. Following the performance, the children are invited to meet the musicians and see the instruments up close.

Neighborhood Strings, our inner-city strings program for at-risk youth, will open the concert.
