Family Concert: Peter and the Wolf
Antonio Anacan, Movement Leader
Michael Djupstrom: The Seahorse and the Crab
Prokofiev: Peter and the Wolf
Round up your kids or grandkids for Sergei Prokofiev’s classic tale of a young boy overcoming his fears! Peter teams up with his friends — a bird, duck, and cat — to defeat the threatening wolf and make it home by supper. With a story that will warm your heart and music to inspire young, curious minds, this is sure to be a memory-making afternoon for everyone in the family.
There will be two shows, one at 1:30pm and the other at 3:30pm.
Join us before Peter and the Wolf for fun, interactive, and family-friendly activities, starting at 12:30 in the Hult Center lobby!
- Scavenger Hunt: Help us find all the characters from Peter and the Wolf. Hiding all around the Hult Center, follow the passport to locate wooden cut outs, made by SparkLab, of Peter, Wolf, Duck, Bird, Cat, and Grandpa!
- Instrument Petting Zoo: Our Instrument Petting Zoo is back! Get the feel of a cello and a violin with this hands-on opportunity.
- Choreography Station: Antonio Anacan of #instaballet will be joining us as the concert's Movement Leader, guiding all attendees through movements associated with each character. Join him in the lobby before the show to learn the movements ahead of time and help those around you
Learn movements for each character!
Enjoy this video below where Eugene Symphony Music Director & Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong and Movement Leader Antonio Anacan teach us movements for each Peter and the Wolf character: the bird, the duck, the cat, grandpa, the wolf, and Peter! These movements will also be taught during the concert program.
Thank you joining us at Eugene Symphony! Whether it's your first time attending one of our events (welcome!) or you're a regular, we are so excited for you to attend!
Here are a few things to expect and plan for on concert night:
- What to wear: We do not have a set dress code for attending Eugene Symphony concerts. Our attendees run the full spectrum, from ballgowns to jeans and t-shirts: We just want you to be comfortable as you enjoy the concert.
- When to clap: It can sometimes be hard to know if the orchestra is actually done with a piece or if they're just taking a brief rest between movements (sections of the piece). To clap or not to clap between movements has been debated for centuries. We want you to clap and celebrate the music when you feel inspired to. If that means clapping between movements, we're glad you're enjoying the piece!
- Join us for a pre-concert talk: Before most performances, at 6:30 pm, we offer our Guild Pre-Concert Talk to all attendees, featuring Music Director & Conductor Francesco Lecce-Chong and the evening's special guests. Stay informed of all week-of and night-of events by subscribing to our newsletter.
