Through Palm Beach Symphony Children’s Concerts, students will develop an appreciation of live performances of classical music at the highest level by a professional symphony orchestra. When young people are exposed to the enchantment and rigor of classical music, critical thinking skills and individual work habits are established. They will learn concepts required for a better understanding of orchestral music while developing fundamental life skills such as self-expression, cooperative learning, discipline and creativity.
Peter and the Wolf
For a fun learning experience, the Palm Beach Symphony performs one of the most internationally recognized pieces that introduces children to music, Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.” This tale depicts the story of a boy named Peter and his adventures with a loveable duck, an impatient bird, a fat cat, a grumpy grandfather and a scary wolf. Along with narration and dance choreographed by Ballet Palm Beach, the musicians bring these characters to life in three free concerts while Palm Beach County elementary school students learn about the different instruments in an orchestra.
