Program:
PROKOFIEV Peter and the Wolf
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467, I

HAYDN Toy Symphony 

Sergei Prokofiev

In this program geared for families, we showcase  Young Artist Audition winner Sophia Lin Hackler, piano, who will be performing Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 movement I. No family concert would be complete without Haydn’s Toy Symphony, one of the most fun works that includes some very peculiar instruments.  Subtitled “An Orchestral Fairy Tale for Children”, we conclude with Prokofiev’s beloved Peter and the Wolf where different characters – from a clarinet imitating a cat to a wolf being portrayed by horns – come alive through the magic of symphonic sound.  Don’t worry, this concert is great for adults, too!
