Concerts for Kids
The Akron Symphony Orchestra’s popular Concerts for Kids series returns in May with Peter and the Wolf. These 45-minute performances are geared toward children ages 2-6 and feature live music by the Akron Symphony Orchestra and conductor Eric Benjamin, along with a theatrical presentation from The Magical Theatre Company.
Peter and the Wolf has become one of the most popular pieces of children’s music ever written. The charming tale of a young boy’s adventures in the meadow behind his grandfather’s house tells a story while teaching children about recognizing musical themes. In addition to Peter and the Wolf, the concert will feature a variety of popular, age-appropriate pieces of classical music.
A ticket is required for every person through the door, regardless of age. Tickets are general admission and cost just $6 for children and adults. All attendees sit on the floor during the performance. For more information, call the Symphony Box Office at 330.535.8131.
