Fall Concerts For Young Audiences

Sunday, October 6, 2019

On October 6 at 3 p.m., join the Allen Philharmonic at the Allen Public Library for a free concert that is certain to delight kids of all ages! In partnership with the ALLen Reads One Book program, we will share an hour of music all about science, invention, and technology. Based on themes from the book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, highlights of the program will include a musical typewriter, a piece that makes the orchestra sound just like a train, and an exploration of how composers actually cobble together ideas to create a new piece of music. Pre-Concert Activities begin at 2 p.m.

Concert Programming:
Silvestri /Moore’s Main Theme from The Avengers
Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite Attacking the Windmills
Wagner’s Siyahamba
Florence Price’s Ethiopia’s Shadow, 2nd Movement
Schubert Symphony No. 5, 1st Movement
Smith’s The Locomotive Chase
Anderson’s The Typewriter
