As any child will tell you, our toys have a vibrant history – they’re almost alive. In this concert Music Director Alondra de la Parra will take us on an orchestral romp through a delightful selection of music that breathes new life into our toys. There will be puppets, dolls and other surprises. Marvel at the 'Toy Symphony', written by Leopold Mozart (Wolfgang Amadeus' father), featuring some pretty wild noisemakers. This concert is for the child in all of us.
