Imagine a symphony hall packed with children. How does an orchestra keep little ones’ attention? The Colorado Symphony has created a remedy with The Listener, a musical and interactive stage performance that's meant to keep the whole family engaged. While the orchestra performs songs—from Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 to Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Swans—two actors from the Magic Circle Mime Company carry a narrative on stage (and in the audience) through miming, singing, tap dancing, and ballet. The presentation—a blend of theatrics, dance, and music—prompts a new perspective: Music is meant to be lived, not just listened to. Sun 2:30 p.m.
