As part of the Music Education Program of the Santa Cruz Symphony, a Family Concert will be performed on March 6, 2016 at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium at 2:00 PM. Titled “Beethoven and the Beatles,” The Santa Cruz County Youth Symphony will play alongside their professional Santa Cruz Symphony counterparts. Guest artists include Mike Ryan of Santa Cruz Shakespeare as narrator, along with members of Santa Cruz Ballet Theater, Cabrillo Youth Chorus, Cabrillo Chorale and the Kuumbwa Jazz Honors Band.
Music students from the audience are encouraged to bring their instruments, as they will be invited to play along for an excerpt of “Ode to Joy” from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. For music practice information, attendees can visit the Symphony’s webpage for the Family Concert. After the concert, attendees may visit a “petting zoo,” where they can try different orchestral instruments and talk with the professionals who play them.
