Family Concert

Saturday, May 13, 2017
Beethoven Lives Upstairs with Classical Kids
1PM   Scavenger Hunt and Photo Booth, provided by Chesapeake Family Life

2PM  Concert - The world famous, Emmy-winning production of Beethoven Lives Upstairs features a lively exchange of letters between young Christoph and his uncle about the “madman” who has moved into the upstairs apartment of Christoph’s Vienna home. Through a touching correspondence dramatically underscored with the composer’s most beautiful excerpts, Christoph comes to understand the genius of Beethoven, the beauty of his music, and the torment of his deafness.

The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors share their anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s life. Presenting history, drama, music and fun, this engaging concert is an ideal addition to any children’s education program or family concert series.
