John Lithgow Narrate's Carnegie Halls' Family Concert

The Western classical music tradition is often seen as a dusty, set-in-its-ways art form for adult ears. Yet the legendary Carnegie Hall institution opens its doors to budding young musos with its popular Family Concert Series, allowing little ones and their family members to discover music from all over the world whilst making classical music accessible.

The series returns this Fall with extra special concert, comprised of three beloved stories, narrated live by Tony & Emmy Award-winning actor John Lithgow. Helmed by conductor Ediwn Outwater, The Orchestra of St. Luke's will play Prokofiev's classic Peter and the Wolf, Caroline Shaw's new adaptation of Alice McLerran's The Mountain That Loved a Bird and Robert Xavier Rodriguez's new adaptation of beloved children's tale The Dot and The Line by Norton Juster.
