Oct. 30, 2015: Warren Philharmonic Orchestra announces children’s concerts, Oh Wow! art contest

The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra is sponsoring two activities for Trumbull County third through eighth grade students that encourage them to discover classical music and musical instruments, performers and composers.

The orchestra will perform two live concerts at Lakeview High School in Cortland on the morning of Oct. 30. Music to be performed will be excerpts from the orchestra’s fall public concert on the theme “A Halloween Spectacular!” Students will experience works by Smetana (“Dance of the Comedians” from “The Bartered Bride”), de Falla (“The Three Cornered Hat Suite”), Borodin (“Polovtsian Dances” from “Prince Igor”), Anderson (“The Syncopated Clock”) and Williams (“Happy”).

The Art in Music contest, where students are invited to create art about the orchestra’s music and its instruments, is the second activity for area students. Contest winners will be awarded prizes at the Family Concert to be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1 at Christ Episcopal Church in Warren. Winning entries will be displayed at OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology, located in downtown Youngstown (ohwowkids.org), for the fourth consecutive year.

Principals, teachers and parents can contact Leanna Dunaway, the orchestra’s assistant executive director, for more information about the concert or the contest at 330-399-3606 or warren.philharmonic@gmail.com.
