The Bryan Symphony Orchestra will be presenting a classic children’s tale, “Peter and the Wolf,” as well as Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7 at 3 p.m. Sunday in the the Bryan Fine Arts Building Wattenbarger Auditorium. “Peter and the Wolf” is a story about a young boy who ventures into a meadow outside of his grandfather’s house with his pet cat and a duck that lives in his grandfather’s garden.
The group plays in the yard until Peter’s grandfather comes to scold him for leaving the grounds of the house, saying that a wolf could come out of the forest at any moment. Peter returns home and leaves the duck and the cat in the meadow, only to escape over the garden wall later. The wolf shows back up, and then the plot thickens.
“This is a very special performance because dancers from Stage One Dance Academy will be accompanying the BSO during this performance,” Gail Luna, Bryan Symphony Orchestra executive director, said. “We’re very excited about the collaboration.”
In addition to the choreography, Mark Creter, Tech theater professor and Backdoor Playhouse director, will narrate the piece.
A concert preview will be held at 2 p.m. in Bryan Fine Arts Building Room 223, and a reception will be held at 5 p.m. in the lobby following the performance.
Adult tickets are $30, senior tickets are $26 and student tickets are $8. Tickets can be obtained by calling the Bryan Symphony Orchestra box office at 931-525-2633.
