A beloved story… Enchanting music…
In the spirit of Peter and the Wolf, The Velveteen Rabbit is a unique concert experience for children (and any adult with the heart of a child). Simply staged, music and story intertwine; a violinist, a violist and a storyteller bring to life this profound tale of what it means to be “Real”. In a time where there is an overabundance of visual stimulation, The Velveteen Rabbit invites us to listen and let the words and the notes spark our imagination. Created in the belief that children have the right to quality, beauty, intelligence, and depth… and that magical experiences with “classical” music at a young age stay with us throughout our lives!
