CWSO: Legends, Tales & Myths Coming Soon
For the City-Times
Our natural world has been the inspiration for music, art and literature since the beginning of time. Under the direction of Patrick Miles, the CWSO will celebrate this with four powerhouse works on February 23rd and 24th! Pamela Luedtke and her Point Dance Ensemble have created original choreography to help the orchestra tell the Russian tale of Peter and the Wolf, wonderfully narrated by Wisconsin Public Radio’s Jim Fleming. The Firebird Suite is Stravinsky’s interpretation of a a magical glowing bird from Russian folklore. Experience the sacred and profane in Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun contrasted by the wild dance of the witches in Night on Bald Mountain.
Modest Mussorgsky – Night on Bald Mountain
Claude Debussy –
Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
Igor Stravinsky –
The Firebird Suite
Serge Prokofiev – Peter and the Wolf, op. 67
Please enjoy a the music of the UW-Stevens Point saxophone studio under the direction of David Hastings during intermission. Beverage service offered Saturday evening.
The CWSO encourages families to attend concerts, but for those future audience members that may not be ready for the experience, the CWCM is offering child care during the Sunday afternoon concerts! Children who are toilet trained through age 12 can be registered for child care at the CWCM. The children’s time at the museum will include a music enrichment activity by a music education student from UW-Stevens Point. The cost is $20/family and each family will be given a voucher for one concert ticket. (So the math is…for the cost of two adult CWSO tickets, you can have child care and a wonderful date!) Vouchers MUST be redeemed by the Friday prior to the concert. No vouchers can be accepted at the door the day of the concert. For further information, please call the CWSO office: 715-345-2976 or the CWCM: 715-344-2003. Concerts:
