Alaska Center for the Performing Arts: Atwood Concert Hall
Anchorage, Alaska
Sunday, 4 March 2018 - 3:00 PM
The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is a stunning showpiece for orchestra and has been a family favorite in the concert hall for more than 70 years! Benjamin Britten was asked to write the score for a 1946 documentary film, Instruments of the Orchestra, designed to acquaint young people with the characteristics of various instruments. The piece was later adapted for the concert hall for orchestra and narration. This listening adventure for kids of all ages showcases instruments of the orchestra separately before uniting them all together for an unforgettable ending.

Also on the concert, Harry Potter, William Tell Overture, and much more!
