For those who have always loved classical music and those who want to make a deeper connection: hear classical music through new ears and eyes with the highly acclaimed performers from The Bakken Trio and Z Puppets Rosenschnoz.

Each event in this series will present one of the four movements of From the Monkey Mountains by Czech composer Pavel Haas.

In each hour long event, audiences will:

• learn about Haas through Z Puppets’ toy theater presentation of his life, from his early inspiration to his tragic death in the Holocaust

• get tips from The Bakken Trio on what to listen for in the music

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

• explore what you hear through Z Puppets’ guided drawing activity.

Attend any number of shows.  Each night will stand alone as a complete experience. Free. Designed for ages 12-adult and youth ages 8-11 accompanied by their adults

This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
