Brundibár

February 20, 2020
9:45 AM & 11:00 AM
Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle Theater

The Toledo Symphony is proud to partner with the Toledo School for the Arts to produce a semi-staged version of the children’s opera: Brundibár. Originally performed by children in the Terezin concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia, this work has stood the test of time. Younger students will enjoy the fairy tale like characters that come to the aid of a sick mother, while older students will be able to experience the tragedy of World War 2 through a different lens.

Achieve Learning Standards

The Young People’s Concerts satisfy Ohio’s New Learning Standards in fine arts for music and other subject areas. Students of all ages are welcome to attend these concerts, however students in 4th-6th grade will find them most educationally appropriate.
