Encore! Kids: Peter and the Wolf

maestro-david-michael-wolff

Welcome to Peter and the Wolf!

I’m the Conductor of the Carolina Philharmonic, and I invite you to discover the magic of the symphony orchestra.  On May 1, 2018, we will gather in Robert E. Lee Auditorium at Pinecrest High School Auditorium – a symphony orchestra of over 50 musicians and over 1,250 students – to make music together.  The orchestra will also tell the magical story of Peter and the Wolf. It will be awesome!  As you prepare to sing, clap, and even dance with the orchestra, you’ll realize how much the sounds of the symphony orchestra already form a key part of how you experience music and art, as well as movies like Harry Potter.  


Along the way, one of the instrumentalists from the orchestra will come to visit your class and see how you’re progressing.  This is an adventure and a challenge for all of us, and I look forward to meeting you at the finish line!

2018 Encore! Kids Art Contest

During last Encore! Kids concert on May 1, 2018, students were asked to paint pictures in their imaginations of the characters and scenes from "Peter and the Wolf" as they listened and then later draw a picture of one of the characters or scenes from the story, or from the larger concert, whether with a pen/pencil/crayons/watercolor/paint, and on the same sheet of paper write what song or part of the concert they liked best, and if possible, why.

A few Carolina Philharmonic volunteers assisted in the selection of the top three art pieces for each participating schools (see below), and three most outstanding and heartwarming pieces among all schools. 

We congratulate and appreciate all students and teachers for participating!
