Mitchell Harpenau, Farkle McBridePre-Concert Activities begin at 2:00pm

The remarkable Farkle McBride is a musical prodigy. He can play the violin, flute, trombone and drums with incredible skill, but something is missing. No matter how hard he tries he just isn't satisfied with the sound of any of the instruments playing alone. In this KSO adaptation of John Lithgow's popular children's book, a young musician brings the sounds and rhythms of an orchestra to life.
