September 28, 2019 @ 10:30 am$5 – $12
A Premiere Performance!
Doors open at 9:30am
Concert at 10:30am
One-Dog Canoe! This lively children’s book by Minnesota author, Mary Casanova, has been turned into a composed story piece for Kinder Konzerts 40th Anniversary. In this humorous story a young canoeist, who sets off paddling on a river, takes on more and more passengers until the inevitable happens. Commissioned by FRIENDS of the Minnesota Orchestra to celebrate this milestone, music by Minnesota composer Daniel Nass will be the centerpiece of the Premiere Performance by an ensemble of Minnesota Orchestra musicians.
Pre- and post-concert activities include:
- Meet Mary Casanova, author, and Daniel Nass, composer.
- Meet the musicians and receive a collectible set of Kinder Konzerts musician trading cards.
- Play a violin or cello – a hands-on experience where children explore how to make sounds on the instrument with the help of a volunteer.
- Meet the folks from Wilderness Inquiry and one of their favorite canoes. As children put on a life jacket and explore the canoe, they will learn some water safety facts.
- A “Make and Take” craft related to the concert themes.
- And more!
