Wordless (almost) Wednesday - Music Soothes the Savage Beasts
A few Saturdays ago, Ray and I attended the Fort Worth Symphony Family Series. I love it - 11 am, one hour, and a cool theme. Very reasonably priced. The place is sold out and families with kids are excited - often first time for symphonic music.
This theme was Carnival of the Animals. It opened with William Tell Overture (the gallop), then Flight of the Bumblebees, On the Trail from Grand Canyon Suite, Old MacDonald, and then a musical set to animal poems by Ogden Nash. Finale - Lion King tunes. There was a featured youth ballet troupe with animal costumes - leaping, prancing, etc. Quite clever.
Keep your eye out for programs by your local symphony geared for the family. Your heart will soar as the instruments play.
