WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (JANUARY 16, 2013) – The Winston-Salem Symphony is presenting “The Magic of Music,” with guest magician Jim Light as part of its Discovery Concerts for Kids 2012-2013 season. The concert will take place Sunday, February 17 at 3 p.m.
Winston-Salem Symphony Associate Conductor Matthew Troy will conduct the Symphony in an afternoon full of magical delights. Children will be enchanted by the music and enthralled by the onstage magic by sleight-of-hand master magician Jim Light and his crew. The Symphony will perform music recognizable to many children if not by name, definitely by sound through popular movies such as Fantasia. The Symphony will play the Overture to Mozart’s The Magic Flute, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, by Dukas and La boutique fantasque, by Rossini/Respighi.
