Santa Rosa Symphony Family Series - The Composer is Dead
The 7th Annual Santa Rosa Symphony Family Series features music, mystery and magic!
The new SRS Music Director Francesco Lecce-Chong conducts the orchestra for the third installment of the series, "The Composer is Dead."
All the suspects are musical instruments, and they all seem to have a motive – and an alibi. So who killed the composer? This murder mystery was commissioned by the San Francisco Symphony and composed by one of its Youth Orchestra alumns, Nathaniel Stookey. The narration for the piece (and the corresponding children's book) was written by the popular children's author Lemony Snicket (A Series of Unfortunate Events). Check out the YouTube video for information about the collaboration.
Each concert in the series features pre-show fun for kids of all ages. Arrive one hour early and visit the Instrument Petting Zoo!
All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
Other Dates in the Series:
Sunday, October 28, 2018: The Conductor's Spellbook, written and narrated by Paul Dooley and involving a young Tony Stradivarius who controls the orchestra with a powerful book of spells.
Sunday, January 27, 2019: Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, a highly-acclaimed theatrical symphony concert that introduces young audiences to the life and music of Antonio Lucio Vivaldi.
