Music in the Mountains Dinner & Family Concert

Guillermo Figueroa, conductor
Paul Singer, Narrator

Enjoy a picnic dinner prior to this Festival Orchestra concert designed specifically for children and their families!

Gregory Smith's, "The Orchestra Games" is the ultimate “get to know the instruments” work because it goes beyond basic descriptions by exploring the personalities of the instruments. Even their strengths and weaknesses. And does so while sprinting through an Olympic array of events.

The work begins with a ceremonial introduction of the players and proceeds to various events such as the low note limbo, the fast note dash, the marathon, and many others. These events demonstrate the capabilities of orchestral instruments while keeping the audience happily engaged in friendly competition.

Join us at 5:30 p.m. for a casual picnic dinner and root beer floats in the Community Concert Hall courtyard, followed by the concert at 6:30 p.m.

For Special Needs seating please call the festival office to assist you with your tickets 970-385-6820
