orchestra for kids in rochester tells tales

Classic Children’s Story Runaway Bunny Comes to Family orKIDStra Concert Sunday, October 30 at 2:00 p.m. Performance Hall at Hochstein, Rochester.

"The Runaway Bunny" by Margaret Wise Brown is one of the most beloved and best-selling children’s books of all time—and now the RPO brings it onstage! This concert features the musical adaptation of Brown’s book, with Michael Butterman (The Louise and Henry Epstein Family Chair), narrator Jennifer Carsillo, and violinist Ittai Shapira taking you on a journey with the adorable bunny.

The concert also includes a charming musical setting of Beatrix Potter's "The Tale of Peter Rabbit."

Pre-concert activities start at 1:00 pm and include coloring pages and create your own puppets.

PLUS—in honor of Halloween, be sure to come in your costume and have your picture taken before the concert.
