Marcus plays piano under the tutelage of Lynn Kiesewetter and liked the solo violinist Yevgeny Kutik.
Zola McGraw and father Jeff McGraw Zola liked the drum tapping and said she is partial to drums since her grandfather plays them. She also liked watching the conductor and how he ramped up the orchestra.
Colin and Olivier Miclea Colin especially enjoyed the last passage that guest violinist Yevgeny Kutik played. Olivier also enjoyed the concert, and their mother Marinela Miclea said she talks to her sons ahead of time to help them appreciate the music.

Symphony of the Redwoods Bring-a-Parent Project
As part of Symphony of the Redwoods' mission to provide
classical music experiences for coastal youth, all students 18
years and under are admitted free to Symphony orchestra
concerts. The Bring-a-Parent Project allows free admission to some adults as well. Bring-a-Parent tickets will be available at Mendocino and Fort Bragg schools prior to Symphony concerts. Each ticket admits one adult (parent, grandparent,
teacher, adult friend or relative) to a Symphony of the Redwoods
season orchestra concert who is accompanied by one or more
students 18 or under. Listen for an announcement at your school on how to obtain a ticket, or call the Symphony office at 964.0898.
