New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Announces PETER AND THE WOLF Concert, 2/9

The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra presents Peter and the Wolf-the second program of the 2012-13 Family concert series-on Saturday, February 9, at 2 pm at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark. Bob McGrath of "Sesame Street" fame narrates Prokofiev's classic tale.

The concert is the annual "side-by-side" concert for the NJSO's celebrated Greater Newark Youth Orchestra (GNYO); the student orchestra will perform alongside the NJSO for "Infernal Dance" and "Berceuse and Finale" from Stravinsky's The Firebird. The program, which also features the Allegro molto from Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, is the NJSO's fifth annual Gretchen Lochner Gonzales Memorial Family Concert, which honors the late NJSO cellist. Constantine Kitsopoulos conducts.

Interactive Pre-Concert Adventures begin at 1 pm in the Prudential Hall lobby. The activities, which are free to all ticketholders, include ready-to-play child-sized orchestral instruments provided by Touch the Music with Claudia Baumgaertner Lemmerz, allowing young concertgoers to play the instruments.

Pre-concert activities also include a craft station, photo booth and a station at which children can practice tying knots like the ones Peter used to capture the wolf in the classic story.
