Program:
PROKOFIEV Peter and the Wolf
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467, I
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major, K. 414, I

MOZART Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466, III
HAYDN Toy Symphony 

Sergei Prokofiev

In this program geared for families, we showcase several Young Artist Audition winners in various works by Mozart.  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!
