Toyota Symphonies For Youth: Mendelssohn’s Mystical Landscapes
Saturday, November 12, 2011, 11:00AM at Walt Disney Concert Hall
If you are looking to introduce your kids to a little culture, look no further than the Toyota Symphonies for Youth! Arrive early – an hour before each performance kids are treated to hands-on art-making, musical activities, dance and much more fun!
When the young Felix Mendelssohn sets out on his first adventure to Scotland, his beloved sister Fanny is heartbroken that she has to stay home. Fanny breathlessly awaits Felix’s letters, which sometimes include lines of new music. And through his music — inspired by crumbling castles, lively bagpipes, violent ocean waves, and the enchanted Fingal’s Cave — Fanny is transported to her brother’s side. If we really listen, we get to go to these mystical lands, too.
The ultimate family event, combining fun and fantasy, makes the LA Phil part of your child’s wonderful world. Led by the LA Phil’s Dudamel Conducting Fellows and directed by theater artists, this series of captivating orchestral concerts will give your children (ages 5-11) the opportunity to create memories they’ll never forget.
