Join CMF Music Director, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, and the CMF Orchestra for a fun introduction to classical music with an orchestra program that will entertain and delight the entire family! Inspired by Mozart’s “Toy Symphony” and a trip by the composer to the famous Hamley’s Toy Shop, Colin Matthews’ “Machines and Dreams” is a symphonic masterpiece that has been described as “full of broad as well as sly humor,” and features as solo “instruments,” everything from toy pianos to fishing rods to bird calls! Featured soloists for the performances are the four virtuosic, brilliant musicians of Brooklyn-based, Sō Percussion, a percussion quartet that exudes energy, rhythm, and rhyme!
After the concert, concert-goers can join in a Music Fair on the lawn just outside Chautauqua Auditorium where kids can visit an instrument petting zoo, and enjoy face painting, balloon tying, snacks and more!
