Learn all about Peter and the Wolf on Jan. 12

Thank goodness for Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf because there really is no better way to introduce young children to orchestral music than this classic. And the Columbus Symphony's Concerts for Kids series this Sunday, Jan. 12, has Peter and several other kid-friendly compositions on the bill.

Recommended for ages 3-10, the concert will take place at 3 p.m. in the Capital Theatre (downtown in the Riffe Center at 77 S. High St.) and will last approximately one hour. But be sure to get there at 2 p.m. for lots of other fun activities, including music and instrument play, crafts and even musical temporary tattoos!

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for children, and can be purchased at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, call 614-228-8600 or 800-745-3000.
