Bremerton WestSound Symphony gets family-friendly with ‘Fairy Tales & Legends’

Half-priced tickets are available for youth ages 18 and younger

Bremerton WestSound Symphony, conducted by music director Alan Futterman, presents a symphonic delight of adventure, romance, and magic in their upcoming concert “Fairy Tales & Legends” at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 15, at the Bremerton Performing Arts Center, 1500 13th Street.

This concert will feature dancers from the Peninsula Dance Theater. Half-priced youth tickets are available at $5 for ages 18 and younger.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” is a symphonic magic carpet ride around the exotic wonders of the Middle East, and a piece beloved by adults and children alike. Loosely based on the “Tales of 1001 Nights,” the scenes include love stories, tragedies, comedies, genies, magicians, Sinbad the Sailor, princes, princesses and swashbuckling heroes.

In keeping with the presentation’s fairy tale theme, the symphony will present a short suite from Prokofiev’s “Cinderella,” featuring the “Overture,” the “Grand Ball” and the dramatic “Scene at Midnight,” when Cinderella must flee before her silk gown reverts into rags and her carriage and horses turn back into a pumpkin and mice.

Finally, the Peninsula Dance Theater will bring to life the story of “Peter and the Wolf,” a classic treat for young and old.

Doors will open at 2 p.m. A special pre-concert performance of the Bremerton Youth Jazz Ensemble will take place at 2:15 p.m. in the lobby.

Tickets are available online at bremertonwestsoundsymphony.org, by calling 360-373-1722, or picking them up in person at the Symphony office (10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, at 645 4th St., Suite 206, in Bremerton) and at the door. Tickets are $28 for adults and $5 for youth 18 and younger, with discounts for groups, students, active military and musicians.

The Bremerton WestSound Symphony season is sponsored by Kitsap Bank and the Bremerton-Kitsap Airporter.
