Thursday, February 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm This is a free school program. Award-winning Aeolus Quartet will join Scrag’s co-Artistic Directors Evan Premo (double bass) and Mary Bonhag (soprano), and Montpelier-based theater artist Kim Bent (narrator) for a series of fun, sophisticated, and accessible performances that feature classical music inspired by well-known children’s tales. Music to include: The Three Billy Goats Gruff by James Scott Balentine that introduces the string family of instruments; B.B. Wolf by Jon Deak where the bassist/narrator wears a wolf costume and tells the story from the Big Bad Wolf’s perspective; and The Ugly Duckling by Jon Deak for soprano, bass, and string quartet, based on the Hans Christian Anderson story. This hour-long program is highly interactive with questions, dialogue, and participatory elements, and empowers the audience to know that they already have the tools within them to appreciate chamber music.
