POOH, ZOO AND A DINO NAMED SUE

Pooh, Zoo and a Dino Named Sue

Venue: Green Door Gourmet
Sunday, June 7, 2015

Intersection's first family concert featured selections inspired by Winnie-the-Pooh, animals and dinosaurs in an afternoon filled with wonderful activities at Green Door Gourmet including food trucks, local honey vendors, musical adventures and hands on connections with animals and dinosaur discoveries! Oliver Knussen's Hums and Songs of Winnie the Pooh is a reminiscence of childhood filled with surprising sounds and visual, sonic images that captivate the senses. Berio's Opus Number Zoo is a playful suite of stories for woodwind quintet. Adolphe's Tyrannosaurus Sue: A Cretaceous Concerto was commissioned by the Chicago Chamber Musicians in 2000 for the unveiling of the amazing Tyrannosaurus Sue skeleton at the Field Museum in Chicago. It is a cretaceous coming of age story! Follow Sue, the world-famous T-rex, on her journey from birth to old age. Searching for food, chasing a parasaurolophus, battling a Triceratops! — it’s an action-packed musical adventure set 70 million years ago! This is one of the most popular works for children’s concerts around the globe composed by Bruce Adolphe — it has been performed by ensembles and orchestras from Utah to Lisbon.
