    Our annual family concert features much-loved music by well-known composers and introduces a new composer to SPM audiences as well. Middle school instrumentalists join the orchestra to perform themes from Strauss’s tone poem "Also Sprach Zarathustra." The orchestra then performs the first four movements of Gustav Holst’s "The Planets." The program closes with "The Composer is Dead," a rollicking and irreverent new guide to the orchestra by Nathaniel Stookey, a young composer who is very much alive, with narration written by well-known children’s author Lemony Snicket. Don’t miss the instrument petting zoo one hour before each performance,presented by David French Music Company.
