LOS KIDS

The Little Orchestra Society presents the second season of its LOS KIDS series, where children (and their parents) get to "meet" classical music greats through storytelling and live music. Each show focuses on a particular composer and his masterpieces, starting with the music of Vivaldi in "A Man for Four Seasons" (Nov 12, 13), then to Beethoven in "Making the Fifth" (Dec 17, 18), followed by Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn in "Sibling Revelry on a Midsummer Night" (Feb 11, 12) and finally Bernstein in "An Upper West Side Story" (Mar 4, 5). With help from a silly guide named Professor Clifford O. Treblemaker, youngsters will pick up historical tidbits about the maestros (who are actors in costume) and learn about their creative processes as they watch professional musicians and guest soloists perform recognizable pieces. Ages 3 to 10.
