Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra Concert for Kids

Jan 27, 2012

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  If you’re looking for something to do with the kids this weekend, here’s an idea.

The Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra will give a family concert tomorrow at the United Methodist Church on West Thompson Lane, beginning at 11 a.m.

Joe Lee is the Orchestra’s conductor.

"It's really designed for children of all ages, but especially the younger ones among us. It's a concert that will last only about an hour, and the selections are just perfect for the young listeners."

Lee says the concert will feature Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”, with WMOT’s own Henri Pensis as the narrator. The concert will also include Mozart’s Eine kleine Nacht Musik and the first movement of the Double Violin Concerto by Bach.

Tehre will also be an instrument petting zoo, face painting and other activities for the kids beginning at 10.

Tickets are $5. For more information visit the orchestra’s website:
