THE LAND OF MAKE BELIEVE

2014–15 Season Family Series—The Gretchen Lochner Gonzales Memorial Family Concert

Just as authors use words, composers use music to tell stories about grand adventures, falling in love, epic battles and so much more, helping to create magical worlds in our imaginations. What stories do you hear in  Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Bernstein’s West Side Story and music from Harry Potter?
