Kids Connect to the Classics

Peter and the Wolf – words by Ogden Nash, music by Sergei Prokofiev

Enjoy a delightful afternoon of music with your elementary and/or preschool aged children at the Newtown Chamber Orchestra’s annual live performance, “Kids Connect to the Classics!”  Your children will discover the beauty of live classical music, and they will enjoy a fun and nurturing educational experience.  The length and content is sensitive to the attention span of a young child.

For our 2022 season, the focus will be on the children’s orchestral work, Peter and the Wolf.  The story, with words by Ogden Nash, is set to music composed by Sergei Prokofiev.  We are joined by board member Tim Bryan as guest narrator.

In addition to the performance, we will display artwork by local elementary school students that was submitted for our Concert Cover Contest.  There will also be an instrumental “petting zoo,” in which children will get to view and carefully touch various instruments.

The Kids Connect to the Classics Concert is funded in part by donors and advertisers who support the Newtown Chamber Orchestra.
