$6 order fee, per order

Program:

Ferdinand the Bull - Bizet arr. Meyer

Hummingbird and the Fire - Mahler arr. Fox

Two timeless stories will be told accompanied by music from Georges Bizet and Gustav Mahler.
Ferdinand the Bull is a favorite children’s story about a peace-loving bull who loves smelling the flowers more than bullfighting. A true classic with a message about being true to yourself accompanied by exotic music from Bizet’s opera Carmen. Our second story, called The Hummingbird and the Fire, combines the music of Gustav Mahler with an indigenous story about how a little hummingbird tries to put out a forest fire one drop of water at a time. It is a parable about respecting the land and what can be accomplished if everyone works together. Two wonderful stories with an important message told with the help of dramatic orchestral music.

TCHAIKOVSKY - Violin Concerto in D Major
SIBELIUS - Symphony No. 2

chosen! Inspired by science and nature, composer Roger Zare’s piece Neowise describes a comet that flew by the inner Solar System throughout July 2020. We then welcome David Kim, Concertmaster of The Philadelphia Orchestra and good friend of the Kennett Symphony, to perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. We finish the concert with Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, a bold and remarkable work with a musical language unique to Sibelius. One of his most popular symphonies, it begins in pastoral sunshine, soon swept away by icy winds, all while developing toward a triumphant conclusion. .
