The Rockland Symphony Orchestra
Nicole Peragine, conductor
WQXR's Elliott Forrest, narrator

The Rockland Symphony Orchestra partners with ArtsRock's Milk and Cookies Family Series to present two classical music works for young people and their families.

Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, designed to introduce young people to the orchestra, is a timeless tale filled with adventure, music, and imagination. The classic story follows the young and brave Peter as he embarks on a daring mission to protect his animal friends from the wolf.

Also on the program is another delightful work for young people, The Babbling Orchestra, with a story by Peabody Award-winning producer and broadcaster Elliott Forrest from WQXR Radio and music by composer Michael Shapiro. This piece for orchestra and narrator tells the story of a piccolo player who would like to play not solo, but with others, only to discover every member of the orchestra speaks a different language. No one is communicating and there is chaos. Ultimately, when they all play together, everybody learns to get along and live in harmony.

Both works will be narrated by Mr. Forrest with visuals on a big screen, provided by local young art students.
