The DeKalb Symphony Orchestra will be presenting their Annual Children’s Concert performing Serge Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. This is a family favorite for children of all ages to come and enjoy. It is a great opportunity for parents and grandparents to introduce their children and grandchildren to live classical, orchestral music.
This one-hour concert will be narrated by WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore and will feature a talented troupe of young dancers from the Decatur School of Ballet. Peter and the Wolf tells the story of Peter and his adventures in the meadow near his home. Other characters in the story include Peter’s grandfather, a bird, a duck, a cat, a hungry wolf and some hunters. Each character is represented by their own tune played by certain instruments of the orchestra. Through the story Peter learns how to cope with life’s challenges and dangers by using courage, creativity and leadership. He also discovers in the process the true meaning of caring, friendship and respect.
Also included in the program will be The Star-Spangled Banner, Gustav Holst’s Jupiter from “The Planets,” Leroy Anderson’s The Syncopated Clock and Bugler’s Holiday, and John Philip Sousa’s Semper Fidelis March.
This special event will take place on January 25th at 3:00pm in the gymnasium at Georgia Perimeter College, Clarkston campus. All tickets will be general admission and are $5.00. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online. Bring the family and come enjoy an afternoon with the DSO.
