ADMISSION IS FREE!
There is no better way to introduce children to classical music than with Sergei Prokofiev’s musical fairy tale of the little boy who, with the help of a bird, outsmarted the big, bad wolf. Prokofiev composed his Peter and the Wolf in 1936 with the hope of introducing children to the instruments of the orchestra. It happens that he also devised a wonderfully dramatic story. The characters: boy, bird, duck, cat, grandfather, wolf, and hunters have been beloved by young and old for decades. Join SCCT Principal Teaching Artist Traysie Amick, GSO Education Director Braxton Ballew and the GSO Wind Quintet for an delightful performance of this classic, musical tale.
Lollipops concerts introduce children to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra through interactive concerts presented by members of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra. During each concert, chamber ensembles accompany a storybook reading. And, of course, audience members receive a lollipop at the end of each performance!
Lollipops concerts are appropriate for children ages 2 to 7, although all children and adults are welcome. Programs last approximately 30 minutes. Reservations are not required and admission is free.
Lollipops is sponsored by BMW Manufacturing Co.
