Family Concert: The Tin Forest

About This Concert:

The beloved children's book The Tin Forest comes to life in this magical concert.

Fun Facts:

  • Join us for a concert sure to delight audiences of all ages! All seats $12. One-hour concert. No intermission.
  • Composer Steve Heitzeg often uses “found objects” as instruments in his works, and his music is filled with surprises. This will delight students who hear The Tin Forest, a musical retelling of Helen Ward’s beloved children’s book, in which an ugly junkyard magically grows into a beautiful forest.
  • Rounding out this concert are thrilling Dvořák and Smetana selections performed by the Orchestra, plus a star turn by pianist Emma Taggart, age 16, who performs the dramatic third movement of Grieg’s Piano Concerto—showing the talent that won her the 2018 Young People’s Concerto Competition!
  • Participate in lobby activities (11:45am-12:45pm and 1:45pm-2:45pm), including opportunities to try orchestral instruments, engage in creative movement, ‭participate in collaborative art-making, learn more about the program and meet Minnesota Orchestra musicians.
