The Oshman Family JCC presents Prokofiev’s timeless piece Peter and the Wolf. The children’s story is narrated and accompanied by a live orchestra and delightful multimedia.
Recognizing the many cultures represented throughout the Bay Area, a different narrator and language will be featured at each of the orchestra’s four performances, helping children connect in an engaging way with their culture and exposing them to the language of their parents and grandparents, whether it’s Russian, Hebrew, Mandarin or English.
After the performance, from 11:15 AM–2:30 PM, enjoy the 'instrument petting zoo' in the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall lobby.
