Our First Symphony Performance

Posted on: 10/05/2009

Today we had an amazing opportunity. We went to a performance of the Long Bay Symphony at the local high school. It just so happens that a very good friend is a part of the Symphony. This was the first time that the children and I had ever been to a concert. They performed two pieces; Peter and the Wolf and The Thrill of the Orchestra. Before the performance my children colored in a ‘guide’ if you will, of the Peter and the Wolf story. We also listened to an audio of it here. We then went to DSO Kids and printed out an Orchestra Seating Chart.We also printed out a visual listening map for The Thrill of the Orchestra.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They each found a different section that they found interesting. Dragon wants to learn to play the violin, Squirrel the drums and I think that Tracker wants to play a brass instrument. I am not sure how he would do though. he really does not like loud noises.

I wish that I had taken pictures with my camera. Of course then I would of not be able to enjoy it through the eyes of my children.That makes everything worth while.

That is wonderful. The symphony is so much fun, even for children. I’m glad everyone had such a great time. 🙂
