The 2014 Family Concert:
Steven Isserlis and the 3 C’s: Classical Cello Concertos

Join us for the annual Family Concert, a FREE event designed for children ages 4-12 in Berkeley’s First Congregational Church. Guest artist (and children’s book author) Steven Isserlis leads a lively program of Classical cello music alongside Music Director Nicholas McGegan and the Orchestra. This fun-filled, interactive presentation includes opportunities for the audience to sing and play instruments alongside the Orchestra in the Grand Finale. (We will tune participants’ instruments to A=430, just below concert “A” to match the Orchestra’s historically accurate instruments. Downloadable music will be posted online in mid-September.) After the concert, Orchestra musicians will demonstrate their instruments up close and answer questions.

Tickets for this FREE concert will be available August 1.
