The concerts, which begin at 9:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m., will last one hour each and will be held in the Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre.
The program will feature “Boyz in the Wood,” a composition by the orchestra’s Maestro Grant Cooper. This is a special piece that re-casts the traditional tale of “Little Red Riding Hood” into a musical story with Little Red Riding Hood as a coloratura soprano and the wolf as a rap artist.
