Kinderconcerts are hands-on experiences kids learn from and remember, with audience participation highly encouraged!
The Adventures of Robin Hood and Ms. Marian takes audience members deep into Sherwood Forest, where Robin Hood and his friends steal from the rich and give to the poor, much to the chagrin of the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham. In a stunning move, the sheriff and his allies kidnap Ms. Marian and hold her prisoner at Nottingham Castle. In a desperate move, Robin Hood leads a mission to rescue his love and bring justice back to England.
Featuring music by German composer Richard Wagner, including the famous Ride of the Valkyries, The Adventures of Robin Hood and Ms. Marian includes trumpet, horn, trombone, tuba and piano. Joe Ringhofer narrates the story.
