The Frog Bride!
I am playing with the wonderful violinist Elise Parker. Together we are performing with David Gonzalez and his fabulous show "The Frog Bride" at the Children's Theatre. Frog Bride features all 5 movements of Prokofiev's music. They're really beautiful. Some are filled with jazz-like harmonies, some are longing for home, some are like a sun-filled day. It's amazing writing really especially how easily they seem to fit into the Frog Bride story. They're short pieces and the kids are totally enthralled with the music and with the amazing David Gonzalez. He magically opens a portal of energy creating a rich imaginative world filled with myriads of colorful characters. It's high art and it reaches all ages. Please come if you can!
