Join the Allen Philharmonic Orchestra for the spring “Concerts for Young Audiences” at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, March 19 at the Allen Public Library. Tthe orchestra will be presenting a casual, family-friendly program of music inspired by space! Audiences young and old will hear music from Star Wars, Star Trek as well as selections from space-inspired classical works like Gustav Holst’s “The Planets.”
The highlight of the afternoon will be the world premiere of composer David MacDonald’s new work for children’s audiences titled “What. On Earth. Was That?” about an alien who finds his way to Earth and can only communicate through music! David resides in Wichita, Kansas, where he teaches music composition, theory, and technology at the Wichita State University.
Pre-concert activities for the kids begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Meeting Room.
