Palm Beach Symphony presents
Peter and the Wolf
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 6:00 pm
$10 Adults * Free for Children under 12
The Palm Beach Symphony engages children in a fun musical learning experience with performances of one of the most internationally recognized pieces of music: Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. This tale depicts the story of a boy named Peter and his adventures with a lovable duck, an impatient bird, a fat cat, a grumpy grandfather, and a scary wolf. Through this narrative performance, the Symphony partners with Ballet East to bring orchestral music to life with dance, costumes, and interactive audience participation. This concert is made possible for the students and families at New Hope Charities through the generous support of Mr. James R. Borynack and Mr. Adolfo Zaralegui at the Findlay Galleries.
