Join us for our final “Once Upon An Orchestra” performance of the 2018-2019 season as Traysie Amick and Braxton Ballew are joined by the GSO’s Principal Bassoon, Amy Yang Hazlett for a whimsical and updated retelling of the classic “The Pied Piper of Hamelin,” with a bassoon twist!

What do you get when you combine Greenville Symphony Orchestra’s music education program with South Carolina Children’s Theatre’s “Tell Me A Story” Theatre?  You get, “Once Upon An Orchestra!”

This performance series connects the children in your life to stories, music, and movement.  Not only will young people be exposed to inspiring classical music, they will experience the connection stories make to these musical masterpieces!  Best of all, we take turns!  First, we perform for you, and then young people are invited to engage in a dramatic interpretation of moments or ideas in both the music and the story.  Come imagine with us!

Performances are FREE and start at 11:00 a.m.  Programs are appropriate for children 2 to 5 years old (slightly younger than Lollipops).
