FAMILY DAY BONUS!

Encore Performance of Symphony Storytime
2:30pm in the SunTrust Auditorium

In this special 30-minute Symphony Storytime concert, the power of music and the beauty of storytelling are perfectly combined to bring a beloved fable to life. Enjoy live music presented by musicians of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra along with narration by Candace Neal, as we celebrate the wonderful art of Jon J Muth. Featuring classic works presented by our string family, families will watch and listen as the violin, viola, and cello help to accentuate the beautiful lessons in The Three Questions.

The Three Questions, written and illustrated by Jon J Muth, is based on a short story by Leo Tolstoy. “When is the best time to do things” Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do?” A young boy named Nikolai searches for answers to these questions in his quest to become a better person. He consults his friends and a wise old turtle. In the story, Nikolai is led to find the answers within himself.
