Peter and the Wolf

Presented by the Children's Education Program of Performing Arts Fort Worth, this presentation demonstrates the many ways that a story can be told. Prior to attending the program, second grade students will read a simplified version of Peter and the Wolf and learn to identify instruments of the orchestra both aurally and visually.
