Welcome back from the holidays, and thanks to everyone who contributed to their end of year campaign, they were able to achieve and surpass their goal.

They are kicking off the year with an orchestral standard featuring one of the most famous children’s tales and selections from an arrangement of a prolific American opera.

Repertoire and schedule are as follows, with conductor David Möschler

1:00-2:30pm – George Gershwin – Porgy and Bess selections (instrumental arrangement by Robert Russell Bennett)

2:30-4:00pm – Serge Prokofiev – Peter and the Wolf, op. 67 with Scott Alexander, guest narrator
