BSOC Family Concert Shifts to Livestream Only
January 18, 2022
Family Concert: Peter & the Wolf | Virtual
Saturday, January 22, 2022
7:00 PM— 7:00 PMUTC
Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale announced on Tuesday that its 2022 Family Concert, originally scheduled to be held in-person, is transitioning to a livestream-only concert due to rising COVID numbers.
This concert will be performed by BSOC musicians at Lockwood Performing Arts Center and available for livestream only. The health and safety of our students and community is top priority, so the decision was made to offer this event as a livestream only on Saturday, January 22 at noon, offered free to all. We look forward to bringing live performances to families throughout the region when transmission of COVID-19 falls to a safe level, as determined by our Health and Safety Taskforce and local, state, and national health experts.
BSOC's 2022 Family Concert brings the beloved musical fairy tale of Peter & the Wolf to life. Sergei Prokofiev's fairy tale is a classic story about a young boy and his animal friends who venture off into the meadow while the wolf is lurking near. The concert opens with work by living American composer and violinist Jessie Montgomery, who was born and raised in Manhattan’s vibrant Lower East Side among artists, activists, politicos, and musicians during the 1980s and '90s.
The program also features “John Henry” by Aaron Copland, based on the legend of the steel-driving man, and the classic work of Beethoven, Symphony No. 9, dubbed the “Chorale Symphony” for being the first symphony ever to include singers.
The program is narrated by Dan Nickerson, Billings resident and a longtime performer and actor, educator, director, designer and father.
This concert is made possible by our generous sponsors, The Billings Gazette, Sibanye Stillwater, and our season media sponsor KTVQ. Tickets to access the livestream event are available at www.billingssymphony.org, the Billings Symphony offices at 2820 Second Ave. N., or by calling 406-252-3610.
