Philharmonia Northwest presents a family concert to provide an incredible first-time symphony experience for young audience members, as well as for the young at heart! Based on Dr. Seuss’ popular book, The Sneetches for narrator and orchestra tells a story about the perils of bigotry and the acceptance of our differences. The Peanuts Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, with virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Biegel, weaves the songs of Vince Guaraldi and Peanuts television specials. The tunes from A Charlie Brown Christmas will make your feet dance and your heart sing as you begin your holiday season!
