We’re excited about the latest in the KSO Family Discovery Series performance, “Peter VS. The Wolf” on February 8 at 3:00 pm in the Chenery Auditorium in Kalamazoo.

I have great memories as a child listening to my record of “Peter and The Wolf” and love the musical composition.


Here’s a little more information about the upcoming performance that is designed for families and kids.


Peter VS. 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!


The Family Discovery Series Are Just Right for Kids

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!


Ticket Information

Tickets can be purchased online at the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra or at 387-2300 and are $12.00 for adults and $6 for children.

    So hard to pick just one!! Emery has yet to meet an instrument he does not like but I’d have to say the piano is his favorite at the moment. He absolutely loves all things musical from the sounds to the science behind it all. We would love to win this fantastic family pack and it would go to great use!

    My twins started playing the piano last summer. They just turned 6 and now want to play guitar, too. Mom can only handle one instrument at a time! They loved seeing Peter and the Wolf at KPL.
