Recounting the New Testament story of Jesus Christ’s final days—from the Last Supper to the Crucifixion—Bach calls for large-scale forces and a divided orchestra.
Close friend and Orchestra collaborator, conductor Stéphane Denève leads a program featuring Peter and the Wolf, Sergei Prokofiev’s musical tale that has entertained and educated audiences for nearly 80 years. The enchanting Michael Boudewyns returns to breathe life into the beloved characters of this children’s classic. You’ll hear the instruments of the orchestra transformed into the spirited young Peter, his grumbling grandfather, and the menacing wolf. A great introduction to the Orchestra!
