Critical Praise for The Composer Is Dead
“You’d be hard pressed to find a sym-phunnier crime story than this. ” — TIME MAGAZINE
Tickets: $8 children, $16 adults
We just enjoyed the wonderful, family oriented San Antonio Symphony, “Pictures at an Exhibition”, the conductor took us through each movement with pictures and explanations of the meanings and inspirations. I am very excited to offer FOUR FREE TICKETS!
The Composer is Dead is a riotous collaboration between composer Nathaniel Stookey and children’s author Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) that combines two elements of great story-telling: music and suspense. In a special Halloween-themed concert, San Antonio Symphony Associate Conductor Akiko Fujimoto will lead the orchestra in a gripping murder mystery where every member of the orchestra is a suspect. Originally created as an orchestral work, The Composer Is Dead was released as a book in 2009.
Family concerts are designed for children ages 4-11, but can be enjoyed by people of all ages and are a lively and informative approach to concert-going, with a variety of hands-on activities during the hour before the concert begins:
- Instrument Petting Zoo, an opportunity to experiment with and play orchestral instruments
- Hands-on musical arts and crafts stations
- Visit from Count Bassie, the Symphony’s beloved mascot
- Halloween costume contest encouraging children to dress as their favorite composer for a prize
