Kidsymphony set Saturday

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra will present KIDSYMPHONY Concert for Families Saturday.

The concerts will be in three locations: 11 a.m. at Bridge View Center in Ottumwa; 2 p.m. at Iowa Wesleyan University Chapel Auditorium in Mt. Pleasant; and 4:30 p.m. at Edward Stone Middle School Auditorium in Burlington.

?Peter and the Wolf? by Sergei Prokofiev will be performed by SEISO under the direction of conductor Robert McConnell, with Hilah Kohen narrating. The orchestra also will perform several movements from Prokofiev?s Winter Bonfire: Children?s Suite.

McConnell and SEISO will take a lighthearted approach to introducing children and their families to the symphony orchestra. The concert also will include demonstrations of all the musical instruments on the stage.

Each concert lasts about 45 minutes and are funny, fast-paced and entertaining.

Tickets are sold on the website, and at the door. Tickets are $3 for adults and $2 for kids.

Detailed information about concerts, schedules, tickets and other programs is available on the orchestra?s website: To receive a season brochure, contact the SEISO office at 319-385-6352 or
