Play Me A Story!

We went with friends to a Community Matinee offered by the San Francisco Symphony ($5 tickets; which includes an educational CD and informative booklet!) Because we were a smaller group than most of the schools attending, we got to sit in (roomy) box seats, which was very special. The music was wonderful and conductor Donato Cabrera engaging in his explanations.

We heard:
Prokofiev: March from The Love for Three Oranges
Saint-Saens: The Elephant from Carnival of the Animals
Rimsky-Korsakov: Flight of the Bumblebee
Respighi: The Hen from The Birds
Grofe: On the Trail from Grand Canyon Suite
Ravel: Conversations of Beauty and the Beast from Mother Goose
Prokofiev: Waltz and Midnight from Cinderella
John Williams: Music from Star Wars
