Family Concert: Peter and the Wolf

NCH, Saturday 29th June 2019

Family Concert: Peter and the Wolf with the Westland Wind Quintet.

Expect to be enthralled by the timeless story of Peter and his dealings with the crafty Wolf, by Sergej Prokofiev with the Westland Wind Quintet. Delve into all-time classics for everyone to enjoy, and learn the story of the wind quintet through the music of Jacques Ibert. Designed for ages 6-12, lots of participation is promised to keep the whole family entertained!

The Westland Wind Quintet was formed in 2012 as a student ensemble of the Royal Irish Academy of Music. In 2014 they were prizewinners in the ESB Feis Ceoil Chamber Music Cup as well as participating in the young ensemble residency at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival. In addition to working in a wind quintet setting they often play in wind sections of orchestras together, performing in a wide range of styles – from early baroque to experimental contemporary music – with different ensembles across Ireland and abroad. And, above all, they really enjoy spending time together!

The Ark

So you think that you know the story of Goldilocks? Think again! This summer, enter the world of SCRAPEFOOT, a walk-through visual art experience for audiences of just four people at a time. Goldilocks wasn't always blonde! In fact, over time she has morphed from a fox called SCRAPEFOOT into an old hag, and finally into the Goldilocks we know today. What remains the same in each version of the story, is that they each entered a house in the woods (when nobody was home), to feast, sleep and shelter. Now it's your turn to explore this enchanting house but beware of the three figures who might
