The search for Carmen Sandiego will move to Spokane on Sunday for the Spokane Symphony’s “SymFunnies” family concert at 2 p.m. at the Opera House.
“The Case of the Missing Bells” is based on the computer game “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” Carmen Sandiego was also a popular PBS television show before it went of the air in 1996.
In this program, Carmen Sandiego has taken the Liberty Bell from Philadelphia, and the children in the audience must help Inspector Clue-not find it with the aid of musical clues provided by the symphony. The journey will take the audience all over the world in a program that is designed to teach children about music and geography in an entertaining way.
The trail of the missing bell will lead to France (Saint-Saens’ “Danse Macabre”), the United States (Bernstein’s “Cool”), Germany (Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Suger Plum Fairy”), Russia (Prokofiev’s “Troika”), India (Delibes’ “Bell Song”) and the Ukraine (Mussorgsky’s “Great Gate of Kiev”).
The search will end with a return to the United States to the beat of John Phillip Sousa’s “Liberty Bell March.”
Soprano Andrea Frey will assist with Delibes’ “Bell Song.” Frey is studying voice at Whitworth College and has appeared in several Uptown Opera productions.
The kid-friendly concert will be preceded by a Musical FunFair at 1 p.m., featuring hands-on activities and games.
The fair is free to all ticket-holders.
Tickets are $7.50, available at G&B; Select-a-Seat outlets or call (800) 325-SEAT.
