Edvard Grieg’s, most popular work, was composed for Henrik Ibsen’s Norwegian allegorical play in 1875. Today, it is considered to be one of the best examples of beautiful melodic “picture painting.” Children of all ages will especially enjoy two of its best-known movements: “Morning” and “In the Hall of the Mountain King” as dancers from Susan Dodge’s Amelia Island Dance Festival and artists from Lauren Templeton’s Amelia Art Studio interpret the music live on stage. Students from the Amelia Art Studio will also create artwork inspired by Grieg’s music. Their work will be on exhibit at the concert.

Local actor Frank O’Donnell narrates the story. A Trio of musicians including Christopher Rex, cello, Elizabeth Pridgen, piano, and violinist Helen H. Kim provide the Inspiration for the dancers and artists.
