So begins the wind quintet and piano version of Roald Dahl’s delightful, and fast-paced LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, with a delightful score by Paul Patterson. Patterson also composed the music for our concert of The Three Little Pigs last season!
The familiar cast of characters are here: there is, of course, a wolf, a grandma and a little girl in a red cape. But Roald Dahl, author of such children’s classics as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach, has spiced things up.
This feisty Little Red certainly doesn’t need a hunter to save her from any wolf!
This concert also features an adaptation of beloved children's book Meet the Orchestra set to classical music!
