Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra hosting Kidsymphony

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra will present Kidsymphony concert for Families on Saturday, Nov. 11. The performances will be at Iowa Wesleyan University Chapel Auditorium at 2 p.m., or at the Edward Stone Middle School Auditorium in Burlington at 4:30 p.m.

?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. Mr. 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 ? not too long for little ones to enjoy from beginning to end. They?re funny, fast-paced and very entertaining. Tickets for Kidsymphony concerts are sold on at and at the door.

Detailed information about concerts, schedules, tickets and other programs is available on the orchestra?s website: To receive a season brochure, please contact the SEISO office at 601 N. Main Street, Mt. Pleasant, IA 52641, phone 319.385.6352, or email
