Introduce your little ones to the joys of classical music with this charming adaptation of Prokofiev's musical favorite Peter and the Wolf, part of Seattle Chamber Music Society's annual Summer Festival Family Concert series. Seattle's Northwoods Wind Quintet performs an abridged, 40-minute version of the timeless classic (along with other delightful tales) and introduces children to the family of wind instruments -- flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn -- that represent characters in the story. Before the show, you can visit a musical instrument "petting zoo" in the lobby where kids can see the instruments up close and learn more about them. Learn More
