From the Monkey Mountains, Movement 4: Wild Night

  • Stillwater Public Library 224 Third Street North Stillwater, MN, 55082 (map)

Experience classical music through new ears and eyes with the highly acclaimed performers from The Bakken Trio and Z Puppets Rosenschnoz.

At each hour-long event in this series, audiences will explore one of the four movements of From the Monkey Mountains by Czech composer Pavel Haas by:

• learning about the dramatic life of this 20th century composer through Z Puppets’ toy theater presentation, from Haas’ early inspiration to the composer's tragic death in the Holocaust

• getting tips from The Bakken Trio on key details to listen for in the music

• hearing The Bakken Trio's live performance of a movement of From the Monkey Mountains

• responding to the music through Z Puppets’ guided drawing activity.

 • sharing discoveries in a group discussion.

Each event will stand alone as a complete experience — or try them all! Classical music lovers and “not-so-much”- ers welcome.

Free.  Recommended for ages 12-adult. Registration opens March 21 at
