Peter and the Wolf


Saturday, August 15 | 11:00AM
Sarah Belk Gambrell Center at Queens University, 2319 Wellesley Ave.
Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf is a musical story based on the classic Russian folk tale. It tells of a young boy's adventures with his grandfather and animal friends. This timeless favorite introduces children to the instruments of the orchestra, as they depict different characters in the story.

Single tickets will go on sale at a later date. Our top priority is, and has been, the health and safety of our audience, musicians, guest artists, and staff, and we will continue to follow local, state, and national recommendations with regard to the COVID-19 situation. We're also working closely with Blumenthal Performing Arts and Queens University to ensure a safe environment where everyone feels comfortable and able to enjoy the performances.


Children will delight in these one-hour family-friendly concerts designed to engage all the senses. Please note: For your health and safety, as well as our staff, volunteers, and musicians, there will not be a pre-concert festival for this performance. 

Family Series concerts are designed for children 4-9 years of age (but enjoyable for all!). Babes in arms (less than 2 years of age) may sit with their parents, and are admitted free of charge.
