"Outreach to Others"- Thru the ARTS
for Atlantic County Students
"Peter and the Wolf" is a composition written by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936 in the USSR. It is a children's story (with both music and text by Prokofiev), spoken by a narrator. It introduces audiences (especially students) to the sounds and sections of the symphony. It tells the Russian story of a young boy who lives in the woods and saves his grandfather from a terrible wolf. The instruments in the Orchestra represent each of the characters of the story, for ex., The French horn is the Wolf; Grandfather is the Bassoon, etc.
It is a wonderful and enjoyable Music Education Program for the Students in Our Community! It is funded by the Schultz-Hill Foundation, a Private ARTS/Education Foundation located in Atlantic City. The Hon. Jesse Tweedle (Mayor of Pleasantville) will deliver the welcoming remarks.
