We are finally slowing down a bit. Yesterday was the final performance for our 2010-2011 season! The Symphony Orchestra performed for a packed house of school children under the Pavilion at Ravinia yesterday. The sun was out, but it was cold and windy! Students watched a couple song and dance demonstrations that the artist teaching staff of Ravinia had taught children from several schools in Chicago, and then we played Ravinia’s One Score One Chicago for this year, Suites from Romeo and Juliet by Sergei Prokofiev. To make the program end on a less tragic note, familiar snippets from Prokofiev’s well known Peter and the Wolf were played with a happy ending, and the children marched out for a picnic lunch on the lawn to the strains of Washington Post March by Sousa.
Do you know who this is and what the happy ending to Peter and the Wolf was?
