Family Concert ‘Peter and the Wolf + Goodnight Moon’ at the Colorao Music Festival!

Colorado Family Concert

If you want to do a better job of introducing your kids to music and culture, this is the perfect opportunity! 

 Colorado Music Festival (CMF) presents its annual family concert “Peter and the Wolf + Goodnight Moon,” on Sunday, July 2, at 10:30 a.m., at Chautauqua Auditorium (900 Baseline Rd., Boulder, Colo.).

This year’s concert, conducted by Kalena Bovell, features Prokofiev’s beloved fairytale “Peter and the Wolf,” which introduces young listeners to the instruments of the orchestra, with narration by Denver-based actor and comedian Janae Burris. The concert also includes an upbeat suite from Bizet’s “Carmen,” featuring local soprano Jennifer Bird-Arvidsson, Eric Whitacre’s musical setting of the children’s classic “Goodnight Moon,” and Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s festive overture, “Danse Nègre,” celebrating his African culture.

“Our family concert has been important to us for years, with this year being no exception,”said Festival music director Peter Oundjian. There is something magical about seeing young children and their families in Chautauqua Auditorium with one of the world’s best orchestras on stage. It’s a wonderful way to introduce children to the beauty of live music.”

Tickets to the 2023 family concert are $10 and available for purchase on the CMF website
