Festival City Symphony will begin its “Pajama Jamboree” season with Halloween with Peter & the Wolf on Wednesday, October 22, at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts at 7:00 pm. Dressed in costume, the orchestra will celebrate Halloween in a performance of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf.” Radio personality Meg McKenzie of Oldies 95.7 will narrate as costumed actors from Nathan Hale High School’s drama program bring the story to life under the direction of Maripat Wilkinson. Attendees are encouraged to wear costumes.

Hosted by Education Director Jayne Perkins, these concerts welcome children to come with their parents or grandparents in casual dress or pajamas, with blankets and teddy bears, and sit on the floor, up close where they can “meet” the orchestra. Conventional seating is also available. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade. Admission is free.

Milwaukee’s Festival City Symphony is a classical symphony orchestra that showcases area professional musicians. The symphony’s mission is to extend the reach of classical music in the community with reasonable pricing, interesting themes, and informative formats that embrace people of all ages.

    Monte Perkins stated (at the all-Beethoven Festival City concert on Sunday at the Pabst) that Peter and the Wolf is what he’s asked to play most often – and one can see why!
