The Bakersfield College Orchestra, under the direction of Lisa Buringrud, is preparing a blockbuster season of music and entertainment for Fall 2015. This year’s inaugural performance is a children’s concert. The orchestra is going to perform Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt Suites I and II.”

This classic Norwegian folk poem tells the story of a boy who runs away from home to find his fortune as a man only to discover that all he wanted had been waiting for him at home all along.

Adapted into a play in 1876 by Danish playwright Henrik Ibsen, the narrative of ambition, temptation, and redemption is set to Grieg’s dynamic and engaging orchestration.

The BCO children’s concert presents suites I and II of Edvard Grieg’s “Peer Gynt” on Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. at the BC Performing Arts Center. Admission donations of $10 for adults and $5 for BC students, staff, and faculty at the door are suggested. Entry for patrons age 17 and under is free.
