Book Adapted by Jennifer Blatchley Smith, Leslie Reidel and Landis Smith; Music by Charles Gilbert; Based on The Original Peter Rabbit Books by Beatrix Potter; By Arrangement with Frederick Warne & Co. Limited, A Penguin Books Limited company. “Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter….” These famous opening lines of The Tale of Peter Rabbit have enchanted young audiences for over one hundred years with the exploits of a charming hero, who, going against his mother’s wishes, has adventures (and misadventures) in Mr. McGregor’s garden. Beatrix Potter created an instant classic with the little blue-coated rabbit who we recognize as both boy and rabbit, wild and civilized, and who has become an icon of childhood since he first hopped out of the pages of a story book and into children’s hearts. Now Enchantment Theatre Company is delighted to collaborate with Frederick Warne & Co. and Penguin Books UK to present the authorized theatrical version of Peter Rabbit™ Tales. In celebration of Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday anniversary, Enchantment Theatre brings her captivating stories to life. Using fantastic masks, whimsical puppets, gorgeous scenery and original music, the magical, marvelous World of Beatrix Potter™ comes alive on stage. Estimated Running Time: 60 mins.

4  Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra: A Miracle of A Season

Bel Air High School, 100 Heighe Street, Bel Air. 7:15-9pm. For our 40th Season, our “Miracle of a Season”, Kyle Smith will be creating a new work especially for the SSO to honor this major anniversary. A well-regarded Philadelphia composer, Mr. Smith has visited Harford County many times for SSO performances as well as performances by the C. Milton Wright HS orchestra when Mr. Bair was the teacher there. The concert continues with two great masterworks, one from Haydn and one from Elgar. Maestro Bair has long been a fan of the symphonies of Austrian Franz Josef Haydn, the father of the Symphony (he was referred to as ‘Papa’ Haydn). Near the end of Haydn's life he wrote 12 symphonies for London. The ‘Miracle’ Symphony, No. 96, is one of these works. Though not a long work, it is bristling with fresh ideas. The ‘Miracle’ refers to an episode during a concert, one of Haydn's own, at which a chandelier fell on the audience without injuring anyone. The last piece of the evening will be Elgar’s Enigma Variations, one of the greatest works in the orchestral repertoire. It is a stunningly beautiful piece for full symphony orchestra, and contains the Nimrod section, which is one of the most poignant moments in all music. Musicologists don’t agree on what the Enigma is (is it a Mozart tune?, for instance), but each variation is a sort of caricature or musical portrait of one person from his circle of close acquaintances. $20 Adult; $15 Senior; $10 Student. www.ssorchestra.org

By increasing our knowledge and understanding of these powerful creatures, Barr hopes to save both reptile and human lives. This is even more critical at a time when people are developing communities in wild habitat such as the Florida Everglades, resulting in more frequent attacks on humans. Barr is currently the host of Dangerous Encounters on the Nat Geo Wild. True to the series title, he recently survived an attack by a 12-foot reticulated python while working in waist-deep guano inside a bat cave in Indonesia—an attack that made headlines worldwide. A frequent guest on The Tonight Show, Barr is nationally recognized for his work with reptiles and efforts to preserve them.

20  Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra: A Royal Ruby Season Finale

Bel Air High School, 100 Heighe Street, Bel Air. 7:15-9pm. To conclude our anniversary season, London composer David Osbon will join us for his wonderful Nelson Overture in honor of Admiral Lord Nelson (killed at the battle of Trafalgar, which he won). The concert continues with African-American composer William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 1, the ‘Afro-American Symphony’ the 2nd performance of this piece by the SSO. It is a most popular work in the US due to its unique scherzo, which includes a banjo in the orchestration. The symphony is jazzy and bluesy while at the same time being a moving statement from 1931. The remainder of the concert will be comprised of works by English composers. Grainger’s Irish Tune from County Derry for strings and French horns was the first tune Maestro Bair learned to love as an elementary student. Sir Malcolm Arnold’s Anniversary Overture receives its 2nd performance by the SSO, performed this season to commemorate our 40th season. Arnold wrote a work for brass band in honor of Padstow’s new lifeboat. The local brass band played this march – Padstow Lifeboat - on the quay during the launching of the lifeboat. The use of the sound of a foghorn in this march, in the wrong key, provides moments of comedy. Local piano phenom, 15 year-old Kara Iwanowski, and the SSO will perform Arnold’s Ballade the film ‘Stolen Face’. This is wonderful film music taking us back to a golden age of film in the middle of the last century. The concert, and our 40th season, will conclude with one of the greatest marches ever written: Sir William Walton’s Crown Imperial, Coronation March. Our May concert is our annual Side-by-Side concert at which we invite the most talented young musicians from the Harford Youth Orchestra to sit alongside seasoned adults for a truly unique musical experience, an education for them and a fresh addition for us all. $20 adult; $15 senior; $10 student. www.ssorchestra.org
