Newtown Chamber Orchestra Presents:


Enjoy a delightful afternoon of music with your elementary and/or pre-school age children at the Newtown Chamber Orchestra’s annual live performance, “Kids Connect to the Classics Concert.” Help your children discover the beauty and enjoyment of classical music through a fun and nurturing educational experience. The length and content is sensitive to the attention span of the targeted age group. The performance of the musical children’s fairy tale Peter and the Wolf will be the focus of this year’s “Kids Connect to the Classics” concert, a family concert. The concert is presented by Newtown Chamber Orchestra now in its 30th season. The story of Peter and the Wolf is adapted by Ogden Nash, the music composed for orchestra and narrator by Sergei Prokofiev. The narrator is WRTI-FM radio personality, Bliss Michelson. The concert will begin with a short overture performed by the Orchestra. An exciting addition to this performance will be a display of artworks from the Concert Cover Contest for elementary school students. There will also an instrumental petting zoo of various instruments for child viewing as well as to carefully touch.


Please join us for this exciting entertaining, interactive and cultural event on a date, time and place to be announced at a later date.
