This fun, interactive family concert will have every family member wanting to “move it”! The program explores motion and tempo in music. The program starts with John Adams’ exciting and fast-paced Short Ride in a Fast Machine. The music of Charlie Barnett will take us through land and space with Blue Chevrolet: A Station Wagon Symphony and the world premiere of My Own Personal Rocketship. We’ll then journey through tempos and rhythms with a movement from Bizet’s Carmen Suite, Johann Strauss II’s playful Tik-Tak Polka, and the fourth movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. Come enjoy this energetic concert for all ages!
Join us 30 minutes before the performance for our Instrument Petting Zoo!
