A Distant Journey-An Interactive Family Concert by the New England Philharmonic
December 15, 2013
Want to inspire a child to appreciate classical music or to play an instrument? Well than this concert is for you.
The New England Philharmonic, under the direction of Richard Pittman, presents its annual Interactive Family Concert on December 15th and Maestro Pittman promises a performance that will keep audiences, both young and old, inspired and engaged.
The concert includes Richard Cornell’s Umai’s Journey featuring the Boston Children’s Chorus and narrated by Renée T. White, Dean of Simmons College and the first movement of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto that will be performed by NEP’s Young Artist Competition Winner, 15-year old phenom, Sammy Andonian.
There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation!
After the performance, children in the audience will be invited to join our orchestra members on stage to visit our Instrument Petting Zoo. We’ll have instruments on stage for everyone to touch and play! We also hope you’ll consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy for our Toy Drive to benefit The Home for Little Wanderers.
