Renaissance presents “Peter and the Wolf” Concert for Kids

January 21, 2014

MANSFIELD - On Sunday, February 3rd, the Renaissance will present Peter and the Wolf, part of its 2013-2014 Teddy Bear concert series. This classic orchestral story includes the original music by composer Prokofiev, paired with a cute story adaptation from Renaissance Artistic Director Michael Thomas. The concert will feature the Mansfield Symphony woodwind trio, with Pamela Ellis on clarinet, Betty Roberts on clarinet/flute/oboe, and Jane Price on bassoon. Part of the Mechanics Bank Educational Series, the concert begins at 2:00 pm; doors open at 1:30. Thanks to the generosity of the Women’s Guild of the Mansfield Symphony, tickets for all Teddy Bear concerts can be purchased for a flat fee of $10 each at the Renaissance Box Office, 419-522-2726.

Inspired by the Kennedy Center’s family programming, the Ren Teddy Bear concerts are set up to allow children an up-close experience with symphonic instruments, live acting, and basic musical concepts. To provide the most engaging performance possible, the Teddy Bear series can accommodate only 100 concert-goers and their very favorite teddy bears, so these onstage seats fill quickly—grab Teddy and pick out your seats at! (Teddy Bears enjoy free admission for this series only). For more information on this event or other Renaissance Education programs, contact the Education Department at 419-522-2726, ext. 251or visit
