The Southwest Florida Symphony presents the next program in its family Cupcake Concerts Series on Sunday, April 15th at 2 PM at the Alliance for the Arts. These Cupcake Concerts are part performance and part family outing. They are designed to educate, engage and spark the whole family’s imagination.
Members of the Symphony Brass Quintet will present the story of the brass instruments, from the earliest use of animal horns for signaling, to jazz and pop music of today. The program includes William Tell Overture by Rossini, ragtime music by Joplin and Semper Fidelis March by Sousa.
Kids and parents can get up close with brass instruments from the Symphony’s “Instrument Petting Zoo” and enjoy a fun-filled, hands-on experience with the trumpet, trombone and horn.
The programs are free of charge thanks to sponsorships from LCEC and the City of Fort Myers. For more information call the Symphony Office at 418-0996 or visit www.swflso.org .
