Santa Cecilia Arts & Learning Center

Meet the Woodwind Family

Last year’s Teddy Bear Concert was a huge success with every seat taken.

So, this year we added more concerts to make sure all of the young people in our audience have a chance to see and hear our musicians and their instruments.

We have scheduled four Teddy Bear Concerts for your family to meet our orchestra family. Bring your children and their favorite stuffed friends to these delightful concerts that demonstrate how sounds, melodies, rhythms, and instruments can bring music to life. Kids and stuffed animals alike will have an opportunity to discover the orchestra’s  woodwinds  or the  strings at a later date.

We will provide a complimentary Milk and Cookies Reception after the concert. And you are invited to bring a sack lunch for your own teddy bear picnic before or after the concert on our grounds. Best of all – the Teddy Bears are admitted free!

An American Portrait

November 12th Saturday, 8pm
String Quartet in b minor, Op.11           S. Barber
String Quartet F major op. 96     (American Quartet)       A. Dvorak
West Side Story Medley                           L.  Bernstein

In “An American Portrait” you can experience America through the eyes and heart of Czech composer Antonin Dvorak. The String Quartet in F major is known as the “American” not only because it was composed here but also because it contains elements typical of original African-American and Native American music.

Barber’s string quartet is the source of the famous Adagio for Strings, popularized by the movie Platoon in its later arrangement for full string orchestra. It makes an even more powerful impression in its original context.  Adagio for Strings is one of the most solemn and evocative pieces of
American music and is often enlisted for times of great emotional stress. This hauntingly beautiful, emotional piece will stay with you well beyond the concert.
