Relaxed Performance

Peter, the Wolf & the Kiwi

Saturday, April 16, 2022 Roy Thomson Hall

Delight in a musical menagerie as the TSO and conductor Evan Mitchell bring two animal adventures vividly to life through performance and narration. Prokofiev’s timeless symphonic fable, Peter and the Wolf, is paired with Kiwis Can’t Play the Violin—a World Première (TSO Commission) from TSO RBC Affiliate Composer Emilie LeBel, based on an original children’s book about the wonders that encouragement can accomplish.

Due to a family emergency, Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser is unable to conduct the Young People's Concerts on April 16. Performances of Peter, the Wolf & the Kiwi will instead be conducted by Evan Mitchell.
