Peter & the Wolf
Sunday, February 27, 3:00 PM

Peter and the Wolf is a classical music story that helps to instill a lifelong appreciation for classical music within children and helps them learn about how instruments sound. It is a symphonic folk tale written by the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev. In 1936, he was commissioned to write a musical story for children by Natalya Sats, the director of the Moscow Central Children’s Theatre. The intent was to introduce children to individual instruments in the orchestra. As a narrator tells the story, the orchestra highlights the characters with musical themes by using four specific instrument families: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.
