From the snow-covered birch forests of Russia all the way to the waterfront of Gig Harbor, Harbor History Museum is delighted to announce a special holiday season performance of the beloved Russian children's tale and symphony, Peter and the Wolf, by composer, Sergei Prokofiev, on Sunday, December 4th at 4:00pm. This performance will take place at Canterwood Golf and Country Club at 12606 54th Ave Ct NW, Gig Harbor, WA 98332.
Peter and the Wolf tells the story of a young boy living deep in the woods with his grandfather and a bevy of animal companions. Although Peter and his friends want to go exploring, Peter's cautious grandfather warns him to stay within the garden gates—a terrible wolf is at large! But although Peter and his friends return to the safety of the garden, they still find themselves facing the dangerous creature all on their own.
The opportunity to enjoy a rendering of this lively story is cause for plenty of excitement, but the Museum is doubly pleased to welcome acclaimed conductor, Christophe Chagnard, co-founder of the Northwest Sinfonietta, conductor, musician, and digital content manager for Classical KING FM; and Sean MacLean, pianist, composer, and host of Seattle's KING FM radio, one of the largest and most popular classical music stations in the United States.
We also welcome an ensemble of talented musicians for the Peter and the Wolf performance. Among them include: Jennifer Rhyne (Flute); Janet Putnam (Oboe); John Ruze (Bassoon); Danielle Lemieux (Horn); Jo Nardolillo Chagnard (Violin I); Mitchell Drury (Violin II); Amber Archibald (Viola); Todd Larsen (Bass); Matthew Drumm (Percussion); Mara Finkelstein (Cello); and Beverly Setzer (Clarinet).
Tickets for Peter and the Wolf are $35 for members, $40 for non-members, and $25 for children ages 3-12. Children under the age of 3 are free. Holiday ticket packages are available for groups. Call 253-858-6722 ext. 5 to inquire. To purchase tickets, visit our Buy Tickets page.
