The Hope College Orchestra invites families and listeners of all ages to a family concert on Sunday, April 24, at 6:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall of the Jack H. Miller Center for Musical Arts.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

The concert will feature two musical stories.  The orchestra will be performing Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf,” narrated by Dr. Deb Van Duinen who is an associate professor of education and director of the NEA Big Read Lakeshore organized by Hope.  The second musical story is a newly composed sequel to “Peter and the Wolf” titled “What About the Duck?” by Salt Lake City-based composer Andrew Maxfield.  This performance of “What About the Duck?” will be a world premiere and will be narrated by Maxfield.
