Peter v. Wolf at Severance 

When: Sun., April 17 2011

The tradition of introducing munchkins to classical music via Sergei Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf continues today at Severance Hall, as the Cleveland Orchestra, under the direction of assistant conductor Sasha Mäkilä, reminds us again that Peter is the strings, Grandpa is the bassoon, and the mean ol' wolf is represented by the entire brass section. Then again, this is the Internet Age. So to ensure that the concert remains more than just another midday nap time, the Magic Circle Mime Company will be on hand to translate the tunes into action. Aimed at kids ages 7 and up, the one-hour concert begins at 2 p.m. Get there at 1, though, and your mini-me can make a wolf mask, hear a percussionist translate the characters into the language of drums, and try out various musical instruments with the help of students from Baldwin-Wallace College. Ticket prices are $15 and $22 at 216-231-1111 or online at Severance Hall is at 11001 Euclid Ave. in University Circle. — Cicora
