A wolf comes out of the forest…and he is in for a big surprise!
Children and their family and friends are invited to explore their creativity with a classical music concert at the Convent this October, thanks to renowned musical education group, Patma.
Children’s classic Peter and the Wolf will be brought to life through narration, with a piano trio illustrating all the action. Sergei Prokovief’s 1936 symphonic masterwork will be performed by Patma in the intimate setting of the Convent’s Sacred Heart Oratory.
All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This program is suitable for all ages.
