LOCAL AUTHOR TO NARRATE PETER AND THE WOLF AT SYMPHONY CONCERT

 

On Sunday, December 6, 2015, at 3:00 pm, the Bucks County Symphony Orchestra presents its annual Family Concert at Central Bucks High School East. Music Director Gary S. Fagin has chosen the theme “Roosters, Elephants, Bees, Fish, Cats, Birds, Wolves, and a special Berenstain Bear—Oh, My!”

The Orchestra will perform selections from Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Golden Rooster and Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals; The Flight of the Bumblebee; and Peter and the Wolf, narrated by noted children’s author Mike Berenstain.  According to Mr. Berenstain, he and his family have always been devoted classical music enthusiasts. Peter and the Wolf was a favorite of mine growing up. I very much support programs that bring classical music to children.”

Featured guest ensembles are the Tamanend Middle School Chieftain Chorus, directed by Ian Sanchez, and the Jamison Elementary Chorus, directed by Elaine Copeland.

The BCSO is also pleased to present its 2015 Youth Concerto Competition winner, Zachary Fung, who will play the first movement of Lalo’s Cello Concerto in D Minor with the Orchestra.  Zachary is a 9th grade student at Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School, and a member of the Youth Chamber Orchestra and String Trio of Temple Music Prep, Center for Gifted Young Musicians; the Philadelphia Young Artists Orchestra (PYAO); and the Piano Trio at Settlement Music School.

This concert is sponsored by Hagey Coach & Tours, the Central Bucks School District and the Estate of Victoria P. Herd.

Doors open at 2:15 pm; the concert begins at 3:00 pm.

Tickets--$10 for adults; free for students--are available at the door, at

Rutherford’s Camera Shop and the Doylestown Bookshop.
