Our violin teacher played with the Akron Symphony today in their “Concerts for Kids” series. The program, done jointly with the Magical Theatre Company, was based on Peter and the Wolf. We went to see her play and also to enjoy some of the theatre company’s “magic” (they truly are good, so no false advertising!)
The concert was held in a room at the Akron General Health & Wellness Center. We all sat on the floor and waved to Miss Tina when she came out. She spotted us right away, and the kids were very excited when she waved back.
The program included:
- George Bizet: Farandole
- Arr. E. Benjamen: I Am A Fine Musician
- Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 – 1st movement
- Sergei Prokofiev: Peter and the Wolf
- Igor Stravinsky: Firebird 1919: Finale
