Peter and the Wolf

Peter and the Wolf

Alejandro Gutiérrez, conductor
Magic Circle Mime Co.


During the Musical Carnival, enjoy free hands-on activities for children, who can meet Symphony musicians, sing, dance, play, color, try musical instruments and enjoy themselves in thematic activities related to the concert. 9 a.m. for 10 a.m. concertgoers; 12:15 p.m. for 11:30 a.m. concertgoers.

Without upsetting the maestro, three musicians and a conductor's assistant must outwit a fearsome wolf that threatens orchestra and audience alike. The concert hall becomes the dramatic setting and musicians are the characters of the story as Prokofiev's exhilarating musical tale springs to life.

Pacific Symphony's Family Musical Mornings are fun and fascinating 45-minute concerts designed especially for children 5-11. Enjoy family fun time together while enhancing your child’s (or grandchild's) love of music.
