Get your wag on! SJWS and Humane Society Silicon Valley join forces to honor our furry and feathered friends. It’s “Dog Day Afternoon” meets “A Tail of Two Kitties” as we feature music inspired by the animal kingdom. This is a concert the kids will love, especially Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, with special guest narrator George Sampson of San Jose’s radio station KLIV.
The rest of program is an eclectic mix of classical and modern works with animal themes. From the world of ballet, SJWS performs a suite from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. From the jazz repertoire the band presents Josef Zawinul’s Birdland and Peter Graham’s new Cats Tales. Rounding out the program are a medley of tunes from the Broadway musical The Lion King and a lively Sousa march, The Black Horse Troop.
