Education Matinee: Peter and the Wolf with the WWU Symphony Orchestra
Time and Location
There are no more spaces left for this event. Thank you for your interest.
This special daytime performance is being offered by the Department of Music and the College of Fine and Performing Arts to area K-12 students, their teachers, and chaperones.
The Western Washington University Symphony Orchestra revives its 2015 costumed and fully-staged rendering of Sergei Prokofiev’s beloved musical tale, Peter and the Wolf. Featuring choreography by WWU Dance professor Pam Kuntz, the members of the orchestra actually portray the characters in the story while playing their instruments: a disapproving Grandfather grumbles through his bassoon while a giant wolf made of three French horns menacingly circles the duck with her oboe. You have never seen or heard anything like this.
With a running time of 30 minutes, Peter and the Wolf is the educational matinee performance for your students.
For those of you wishing to have a fun evening out with kids and families, please join us for the 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. performances.
