As part of their music education outreach program, the Palm Beach Symphony will present four concerts in collaboration with Ballet Palm Beach for over 4,200 Palm Beach County school children.
PALM BEACH, FL (November 3, 2016) – The Palm Beach Symphony will perform four shows of Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with Ballet Palm Beach this week for over 4,200 Palm Beach County School children, including public, private and home schoolers.
These SOLD OUT shows will take place at the Kravis Center (Oct. 31,) Nov. 2 at the 700-seat Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens and two performances on Nov. 4 at The Society of the Four Arts’ 700-seat auditorium, totaling the number of students served at 4,200, bringing music education to life through this wonderful live orchestral performance. Transportation is included and provided at no charge.
These events will combine to equal the most children that will have attended a free live orchestral performance in Palm Beach County’s history. It’s double the 2,100 who attended three packed concerts last year at the Four Arts and Eissey theaters.
Today’s Kravis concert is part of the center’s S*T*A*R Series for schoolchildren. The symphony performed two S*T*A*R series concerts two years ago, but those were held in the 300-seat Rinker Playhouse.
The concerts receive support from the venues as well as from Paul and Sandra Goldner, who donated a $25,000 matching grant for education annually to the symphony, and from other contributors.
Here is a dropbox with some amazing photos from the Kravis performance.
