Soothe Away the Stress of the Holidays With a Wintry Concert at the Brooklyn Museum


    Spend an afternoon surrounded by art and seasonal sounds with a concert by the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra at the Brooklyn Museum.

    The festive program will include “Peter and the Wolf” by Sergei Prokofiev, “Nutcracker Suite,” Duke Ellington’s spin on the Tchaikovsky classic and “Childhood Scenes” by Brooklyn-born composer Richard White. If you want a more personal musical experience there will be the chance to enter a raffle to win the opportunity to conduct the orchestra for a rendition of Leroy Anderson’s “Sleigh Ride” and have lunch with the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra’s artistic director, Nicholas Armstrong.

    The concert takes place on Sunday, December 15 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Brooklyn Museum at 200 Eastern Parkway. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for museum members and seniors. For more information visit the event page online.
