Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra Family Concert: Mozart & Me
Alex Theatre (Glendale, CA)
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra presents a chance for families to experience classical pieces Mozart wrote when he was just a boy. To keep things lively, the music is interspersed with enactments of the youthful composer’s letters to his father. The young composer’s music will be played by a young performer as well: ten year-old pianist Ray Ushikubo from The Colburn School plays variations Mozart wrote on an old folk tune. That tune is known to lullaby-singing parents and caregivers everywhere as “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” Soprano Krystle Casey joins the Pasadena Master Chorale for performances of some of the master’s gorgeous vocal works. Teach your children about Mozart and spend the day together making memories. Before the concert, kids can participate in themed activities and play instruments at the Instrument Petting Zoo.
