& the Wolf
Seaside Brass performs Prokofiev's classic
work with a modern twist.
The characters of this beloved tale come to life as they
are represented musically by the different instruments in our brass and
percussion ensemble. In our version, though, each theme is performed
in a different style: Peter - NeoClassical, The Duck - Waltz, The Grandfather
- Jazz Shuffle, The Cat - Swing, The Bird - Salsa, and The Wolf - Reggae. A narrator tells
the story in a dramatic fashion, and conducts demonstrations and a question
and answer segment after the performance.
Our premier concert of Peter and the Wolf was a great success! Here's what some people said about it:
"Wonderful concept! Very entertaining and appropriate for age range (even the adults in the audience)."
"Thank you for an original new experience."
"Perfect performance - wonderful music!"
"What a joy!"
"The music with the story tied in really well. Loved the storyteller! The inclusion of the kids with the show was great."
