11:00 AM

For families and kids ages 8-12, Kaleidoscope, the Teaching Artist Ensemble of the New York Philharmonic, presents "The Land of Musical Opposites" — its take on Shakespeare’s magical A Midsummer Night’s Dream, based on music by Felix Mendelssohn.  Learn how Mendelssohn, Schumann and Mozart mix and match musical opposites to create new settings that tell the story of different characters, including the fairies and humans from Shakespeare's play.  You can even sing along with the fairies as you help create a world of enchantment. 

Designed by Philharmonic teaching artists, Kaleidosope’s Interactive Performances unlock children’s imaginations and understanding of great music as they sing, dance, respond, and create along with the musicians on stage.  For ages 8-12.
