Trick or Treat? Both! This Halloween, South Florida families will be treated to a special performance as Orchestra Miami inaugurates its new Family Fun Concert Series with Prokofiev’s classic tale, Peter and the Werewolf, at Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in Aventura on October 31st. Featuring a unique Halloween “twist”, Orchestra Miami, conducted by Elaine Rinaldi, will perform with special guest narrator, “The Necromancer” (a.k.a. Neil Tobin), who will illustrate the story with magic tricks and special effects. Kids will be treated to cookies and juice after the performance and are encouraged to come in Halloween costume for the parade!
The new Family Fun Concert Series is modeled in the tradition of the former “Sunday Afternoons of Music for Children” series from Doreen Marx and Bryan Krulewitch and is designed to introduce children to a wide variety of art forms such as opera, theater, ballet and symphonic music, through exciting, kid-friendly performances. “When Doreen & Byron retired, I knew right then and there that Orchestra Miami needed to pick up where they left off. I’m so proud that we’re able to bring this new series to families all over Miami Dade County. It’s a perfect fit for our mission and our goal of bringing high quality classical music to all people in Miami-Dade County,” says Elaine Rinaldi, founder and artistic director of Orchestra Miami.
Featuring five different programs, the Family Fun Concert Series will be performed at three different venues for a total of 15 concerts, and is made possible through generous grants from the State of Florida’s Division of Cultural Affairs and the Funding Arts Network.
