  • Classical Kids Live with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra 4pm @ Emens Auditorium 1800 W Riverside Ave

    This popular newcomer in the Classical Kids series features Mozart’s young son, Karl, who longs to be taken from his boarding school to spend more time with his famous father. An old traveling trunk serves as a magic chest that reveals an incredible journey back in time to Mozart’s childhood and into the fantastic world of Mozart’s great opera The Magic Flute. Along the way, Karl comes to understand Mozart’s extraordinary life as a traveling prodigy, his pressures from family and fame, his passion for composing, and the common bonds they both share.


    The music, performed by the Muncie Symphony Orchestra, is magically woven into the drama as two actors recreate historical incidents from the composer’s life. This mesmerizing concert and story performance is approximately 50 minutes in length and is ideal for families. This program is recommended for youth age six and up, however the laid-back atmosphere allows audience members of all ages to enjoy the performance.
