"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 Soviet Union. 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 skillfully traps a wolf who has been terrorizing him and his animal friends. 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.
