Wellesley Symphony Orchestra Concert: “Buzz!”
The Wellesley Symphony Orchestra will present “Buzz!”, a family concert featuring musical insects and more on April 4 at MassBay Community College at 3 p.m.
Guest conductor Geneviève Leclair will be joined by special guest Laura Mattei from the Sudbury Valley Trustees as the orchestra performs music about bees, wasps and other interesting insects. The program will appeal most to kids ages 5-11, and children are encouraged to don their favorite insect costume.
On the program, the overture to The Wasps by Vaughan Williams, Arthropod Suite by Peters, La Cucaracha, and what is a concert on insects without Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky Korsakov?
Mattei from Sudbury Valley Trustees will talk about insects, their beauty, their importance to our environment and how we can help save them.
John Matters, winner of the last Michael H. Welles Competition for Young Soloists, will play the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
The concert will take place at MassBay Community College, 50 Oakland St., Wellesley, on Sunday, April 3 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $25 online for all attendees, $30 at the door. All spectators must be fully vaccinated and wear masks. The seats are sold so that there is
some distance between the groups. There is plenty of free parking.
