Join us for an educational musical event on Saturday, December 14, 2019! Beginning at 10 am, before our 11 am condensed matinee performance, our professional musicians (and their instruments) will be available for your children’s enjoyment. This is a great hands-on opportunity and a powerful way to introduce young children to a variety of instruments. For the holiday season, the Albany Symphony brings to life Engelbert Humperdinck’s musical score for the Grimm brother’s fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. Join singers, chorus, dancers and orchestra for this presentation in the theater on the West Campus of Albany State University. Enjoy this familiar tale as Hansel and Gretel, a young brother and sister, are kidnapped by an evil witch living in a house constructed of cake, confectionery, and candy. The two children escape with their lives by outwitting the witch and rejoice as they reunite with their parents.
