An Afternoon of Holst, Beethoven, and Prokofiev

Join us at 3 p.m. on March 17 for our annual Music for All Ages concert, where the Norwalk Symphony Orchestra performs Jupiter from Gustav Holst’s Planets side-by-side with the Norwalk Youth Symphony’s Principal Orchestra. We will also feature the winner of the Symphony’s 2019 Young Artists Festival Concerto Competition, twelve-year old Hudson Ragins, who will perform the third movement of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1. We conclude our concert with Sergei Prokofiev’s beloved Peter and the Wolf, with noted stage and screen actress Mia Dillon providing the narration and New England Academy of Dance members providing ballet interpretation.

We are excited to partner with other local non-profits for this concert as well:

  • Children will have an opportunity to make masks as Stepping Stones Museum for Children facilitates this craft project from 2:00-2:50 p.m.  Then they can wear their masks during the performance!

  • We also ask you to bring new or gently used children's books that will be donated to the library at the Child Guidance Center in Norwalk through a project sponsored by the Leadership Institute under the Norwalk Chamber of Commerce.  

We are also partnering with Norwalk's Wheels2U free bus to transport you from the train stations or within the local-ride zone to the concert hall, and to enjoy a discount at three area restaurants - Harlan Public, Don Carmello's and Station House - by showing your ticket stub!  Go for lunch or brunch before the show, or dinner when it ends!

In all, this promises to be a wonderful afternoon.   Bring the family and share the joy of listening to wonderful music in the acoustically wonderful Norwalk Concert Hall.
