Wooly Kinderconcert Series wraps up with The Four Musicians of Bremen tale

Guelph, ON March 5, 2014 – The third and final installment of this season’s popular Wooly Kincerconcert Series takes place at River Run Centre on Saturday, March 22. The mini-concert will feature a musical telling of The Four Musicians of Bremen, a tale from the Brothers Grimm. Performances take place in the Co-operators Hall at 9:30 am, 10:30 am, and 11:30 am.

The Four Musicians of Bremen is the story of a musical menagerie including a cat, rooster, dog and a donkey. The animals, outcast from their home farms, set out into the world to seek a new life in the town of Bremen. Join a trombone-playing Donkey, a bass-playing Dog, a clarinet-playing Cat, and a trumpet-playing Rooster as they unwittingly trick a band of robbers and save the day! Music from the Merry Widow (Lehar), Eugene Onegin (Tchaikovsky), Symphonie Fantastique (Berlioz), and Fats Waller.

The Kinderconcerts introduce young children to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra. Performances are aimed at toddlers and preschoolers. At each concert, members of the Guelph Symphony Orchestra play selections of classical music to accentuate a story – often a well-known fairy tale – read aloud by a narrator. Children are encouraged to interact, and after the story is finished they have the opportunity to see the instruments up close, chat with musicians and ask questions. It’s the perfect way to plant the seeds for a lifelong love of music.

Tickets are $14 for adults, and $11 for children. $5 eyeGO are available for high school students with valid ID. Please note that everyone must have a ticket to enter the theatre, including children and infants. Each child must have adult accompaniment. Tickets are available at the River Run Centre box office at 519-763-3000, or online at riverrun.ca
