Your child’s imagination will soar as Mr. Mark and WSO mascot Manny Tuba find themselves mixed up in the most important gathering of birds from all over the world.
A twelfth-century Persian Sufi dreams he has been transformed into a bird, a hoopoe, and travels to a gathering to decide who will be the new king of birds. Mr. Mark and Manny Tuba land right in the middle of this most curious gathering and find themselves tangled up in its mysterious outcome.
Children can participate in musical activities such as crafts, rhythm ensembles and round-singing. They can visit the Conducting Station where they will get the chance to conduct a group of musicians or visit the Instrument Petting Zoo to touch and play orchestral instruments. These activities are presented in partnership with Music for Young Children. Pre-Concert Activities begin at 1:00 PM.
