BAY ATLANTIC SYMPHONY PERFORMS A SCHOOL CHILDREN’S CONCERT: PETER AND THE WOLF
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 2019
The Schultz-Hill Foundation has commissioned Bay Atlantic Symphony to perform a free music education concert program for Atlantic County school students from Principle Academy Charter School and Our Lady Star of the Sea Elementary School.
Under the direction of Bay Atlantic Symphony’s music director and maestro Jed Gaylin, the orchestra will perform a much beloved youth music education program featuring Peter and the Wolf, a symphonic fairytale for children.
Written by composer Sergei Prokofiev in 1936 in the Soviet Union, Peter and the Wolf is a children's story(with both music and text by Prokofiev), spoken by a narrator. It introduces audiences (especially school age students) to the sounds and sections of the symphony. The fairytale tells
the story of a young Russian boy who lives in the woods and skillfully traps a wolf which has been terrorizing him and his animal friends. The instruments in the Orchestra represent each of the characters of the story, for ex., the French Horn is the Wolf; the Bassoon is Peter’s grandfather, etc.
Serving as the fairytale’s on-stage, live narrator is 25-year old Stockton University theater performance major Ryan Gorman. Hailing from Belvidere, N.J., Gorman is both an actor and director at Stockton University.
Several days prior to the performance, the student audience will receive a curriculum guide/primer designed to familiarize them with the performance and allow each student to get the most from this arts education opportunity.
A “Question and Answer” session between the students and Maestro Jed Gaylin will be part of the program.
Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
