A Lemony Snicket Holiday
December 23, 2017 | 4:00PM | 8:00PM
Donato Cabrera, music director
WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT
- The Composer Is Dead was composed by Nathaniel Stookey with text by Lemony Snicket as a whodunit mystery for all ages, written in the style of Prokofiev's Peter & the Wolf and Britten's The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, and someone in the orchestra is guilty!
- Tony nominee and Broadway star Manoel Felciano (pictured) comes straight from the New York run of Amélie to narrate this concert.
- The holiday concerts are always our most popular performances of the year, perfect for symphony-goers young, old, or anywhere in between wanting to get into the holiday spirit.
- This concert includes an audience sing-along...and some people get pretty into it (which we love)!
- Family Pre-Show Activities: Join us in the lobby starting an hour before the show for activities including an instrument petting zoo, where you can touch, hold, and even play the different instruments in the orchestra! Learn more here.
- Meet the artists in the lobby after the concert, where they will be signing copies of their latest collaboration, ZIPPERZ.
- San Francisco Chronicle preview here.
