Peter and the Wolf

Composed in 1936, Peter and the Wolf is a fairy tale brought to life through music and dance. The story follows Peter, a young boy, and the animals he encounters near his forest home. Each character’s unique musical theme combine for a beautiful and whimsical performance reproducible by a small school band or a full orchestra.

The Michigan Learning Channel has partnered with the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra and the Grand Rapids Ballet Company to bring this performance to your television. Catch screenings October 13 at 10:30am and 7:00pm and October 17 at 10:30am and 7:00pm. On demand video will be available during the entire month of October.
