Kennett Symphony invites young audiences

02/26/2014 01:22PM, Published by ACL, Categories: In Print, Arts+Entertainment



The Kennett Symphony of Chester County, under the direction of guest conductor, Dr. Robert Spence, will present “American Patchwork” at its annual children’s concerts, on March 2 at 2 p.m. at the International Cultural Center on the campus of Lincoln University; and on March 9 at 2 p.m. at Emilie K. Asplundh Hall, Phillips Memorial Building, on the campus of West Chester University.

The concerts are presented in an educational, interactive and fun format. This year’s concerts include learning about the instruments of the orchestra (strings, winds, brass, and percussion) and the performance of symphonic and choral favorites by American composers. Following each performance, the symphony will offer activities and its popular Instrument Zoo, during which children meet and greet the musicians of the Kennett Symphony.

The concerts feature the Kennett Symphony Children’s Chorus and pianist, Dr. Justin Badgerow. The program includes Sousa’s patriotic “Liberty Bell March,” Anderson’s surprising “The Typewriter,” Copland’s “I Bought Me a Cat” and “Simple Gifts,” MacDowell’s “Presto Giocoso” from “Piano Concerto No. 2,” and Ginastera’s “Danza Final.”

All tickets are $5 per person and seating is reserved. Visit www.kennettsymphony.org or call  610-444-6363.
