Orchestra Miami will present a fun-filled Family Concert, featuring a performance of The Purple Palace, composed by Bruce Adolphe with the story written by Louise Gikow. The 28-piece orchestra will be led by Orchestra Miami Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi along with a special guest narrator. This delightful program will last approximately 50 minutes and is perfect for children ages 3 and up.
The Purple Palace tells the comic but touching tale of the land of Chromatica, where everything is light and color. Queen Red and King Blue have a child, Princess Purple. When she becomes queen, she banishes all colors but purple. This leads to nothing but trouble for her, and she eventually comes to understand her mistake. She invites all the banished colors to return, and Chromatica is once again vibrant and full of color. Beyond its affirmative social message for children- emphasizing the value of diversity and democracy- the story is rich in visual images that are clearly portrayed in the music. Each color has a theme, and as the plot unfolds, orchestral colors are varied and mixed just as an artist would use colors to illustrate the story in a book.
The concert will be on Sunday, January 18, 2015 at 4:00 PM at Pinecrest Gardens’ Banyan Bowl, located at 11000 SW 57 Avenue, Pinecrest, FL 33156. Tickets are $12 for Adults and $8 for children, and Family Packs (2 Adults & 2 Children) are available for $30. Children 2 and younger admitted free of charge with lap seating only. Seating is by general admission and there is ample free, on-site parking.
