Sunday, January 21, 2018: TWO PERFORMANCES, 2 PM and 4 PM
Featuring narrator Carmen Hicks
The Journey of Phillis Wheatley
Plus an exciting collaboration with a young NEC
guest artist and an audience sing-along!
We encourage families to bring children of all ages to our annual Family Concert. This concert is a wonderful introduction to the varied styles of the orchestra.
The centerpiece of the concert will be Nkeiru Okoye’s The Journey of Phillis Wheatley, a musical story about a famous African-American poet in eighteenth-century Boston, with text by Carolivia Herron. This story will be narrated by the CSO’s own Carmen Hicks.
After the concert, children are invited to our instrument petting zoo, where they can try out string, woodwind, and brass instruments themselves.
The Cambridge Symphony Orchestra thanks the Massachusetts Cultural Council for supporting our 2016-17 season.
