A wolf in Pike County

October 27, 2011

MILFORD, PA – WQXR announcer Bob Sherman, flutist Allison Kiger and Ensemble Tremblay will perform Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and other pieces at the Milford Theatre on Saturday, October 29 at 3 p.m. Tickets cost $20 for adults; children under 12—for whom Prokofiev wrote Peter and the Wolf in the first place—are admitted free.

Peter and the Wolf is a narrated piece written in 1936 to introduce children to classical music, but it is as popular with adults as it is with kids. It tells the story of a boy who, defying his grandfather, captures a dangerous wolf and then must decide what to do with him.

The October 29 concert also includes music by Ligeti, Nielsen and Dvorak, whose 170th birthday is being celebrated this year.

This 3 p.m. concert is a production of Kindred Spirits Arts Programs, a nonprofit organization that offers concerts and music education programs in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Tickets are available on the Kindred Spirits Arts Programs website. Email or call 570/296-7429.
