[NSO Family Concert: <i>Spooky Sounds and Scary Tales</i>.]

More Information

Spooky Sounds and Scary Tales
Brett Mitchell, conductor
 
What do vampires, werewolves, and mummies do on Halloween? They try to disguise themselves as orchestra members, hiding behind their instruments on the Concert Hall stage. Come early for pre-concert trick-or-treating dressed in your spookiest get-up and enjoy a musical Halloween costume party with this "spirited" Sunday afternoon concert event. Conductor Brett Mitchell and the NSO will be wearing their own trick-or-treat outfits as they perform Dukas's The Sorcerer's Apprentice, John Williams's Hedwig's Theme from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and music from other scary tales. It's guaranteed to be a ghoulish good time! For age 5 and up.
 
SPECIAL PRE-CONCERT TRICK-OR-TREATING!

Come early in your spookiest get-up for a special Halloween variation of the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo" in the Atrium. This year, the Women's Committee for the NSO will turn the Atrium into a Haunted Hall. Ninety minutes before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up close and hands-on with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion. Little phantoms can also visit with Maestro Mouse, Mosby the Cat, and other costumed characters; watch the witches as they mix their favorite brew in their cauldron; have their faces painted; or simply have a fun trick-or-treat adventure.

Stay after the 3 p.m. concert for a Kids' Chat. Following the 3 p.m. concert, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.

Sat., Jan. 8, 2011 (Family Concert) NSO Teddy Bear Concert: Fancy That!

[NSO Teddy Bear Concert: <i>Fancy That!</i>.]

More Information

Sometimes it's fun to look fancy, but did you know that you can fancy up music? NSO violinist Marissa Regni plays a one-woman show about how to decorate music in the form of ornamentation and variations. To help "illustrate" this idea, the program is presented alongside graphic artist Marie Cheek, who will put children's imaginings of fancy music into images. Music by Bach, Mozart, and Prokofiev is featured in this program that proves that both teddy bears and musicians love to accessorize. For ages 3 to 5. Come early for "musical playtime." Starting a half hour before each Teddy Bear Concert, enjoy these music and movement activities especially designed for small children.


Sun., Jan. 9, 2011 (Family Concert) NSO Ensemble Concert: Connections: MORE Science and Music

[NSO Ensemble Concert: <i>Connections: MORE Science and Music</i>.]

More Information

Endangered species, synapses, neurons, condensation, and precipitation--are these terms from a science course or a music class? In this fast-paced, multimedia performance, students hear and see how a melody can be played on a laundry hose (or a tuba); how instrument makers are responding to the near-extinction of their favorite trees; and whether a violinist can break a world speed record. Featuring NSO musicians Yvonne Caruthers, cello, Natasha Bogachek, violin, and Stephen Dumaine, tuba, it's science with excitement! For age 9 and up.

Susan Hammond, creator
Natalie Berg and Thad Avery, actors
David Amado, conductor
 
What to do about the loud neighbor upstairs? When Ludwig van Beethoven moves into his family's Vienna boarding house, young Christoph begins writing letters to his uncle about the "madman" living above him. Through a touching correspondence dramatically underscored with more than twenty-five excerpts from the composer's most beautiful works, Christoph comes to understand the genius of Beethoven, the beauty of his music, and the torment of his deafness. Part history, part drama, all fun, this is an excellent introduction to the master's music, including the Moonlight Sonata, Für Elise, and the great Fifth and Ninth Symphonies. For age 5 and up.
 
Come early for the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo." An hour before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up close and hands-on with the instruments they'll see played on the stage--from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion--in the Kennedy Center Atrium. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
