Family Discovery & KSO Kids

The KSO Family Discovery concerts offer an amazing opportunity to introduce children of all ages to symphonic music. These concerts blend some of the most beautiful musical compositions with familiar stories, dances and performers that children easily relate too.

Family Discovery Series

A delightfully entertaining introduction to symphonic music for children ages 4 and up, the KSO's Family Discovery Series at Chenery Auditorium engages children (and adults!) with great music and interactive drama. The concert lasts about one hour, but come early for the pre-concert activities!

Peter VS. the Wolf


Sunday, February 8, 2015 | 3 pm
Chenery Auditorium

Have you ever heard the story of Peter and the Wolf?

In Justin Locke's hilarious spin on the original Russian tale, the Wolf stands trial for "Duckicide in the first degree, with one gulp." With Prokofiev's original music presented in court as evidence, the Wolf cross-examines individual members of the orchestra on the stand and presents his case to the audience, which also acts as the jury. This lively new introduction to the instruments of the orchestra is like no other version of "Peter and the Wolf" we've ever seen. Smiles guaranteed!
