Without upsetting the maestro, three musicians and a conductor's assistant must outwit a fearsome wolf that threatens orchestra and audience alike. The musicians become the characters as Prokofiev's exhilarating musical tale springs to life, putting kids (and adults!) on the edge of their seats.
Violinist Joshua Bell brings his own true story to life for children and adults alike in this special Family Concert, based on the children’s book The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson. Inspired by the time Bell famously took his instrument into the Washington, DC subway for a free concert — where only seven out of thousands of commuters stopped to listen — he recreates the heartwarming story that reminds us all to stop and appreciate the beauty around us.
