Very Young People's Concerts
Very Young People's Concerts:
Let's tell a story!
This year's concerts explore how music can tell a story with the help of Maestro Lucas Richman and the KSO's animated friend, Picardy Penguin. Picardy will help students learn how music can emphasize important parts of a story or define character. Students will join the KSO in the concert theme song: Music Can Make Your Life Complete, create a musical story in Lucas Richman's The Birthday Present, explore how music emphasizes plot in Richman's Playground Escapades, and Picardy will narrate Prokofiev's beloved Peter and the Wolf which many students study in first and second grades! Other repertoire includes: the traditional folk song Blow the Man Down, Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee, and Mozart's Overture to the Marriage of Figaro.
