"Fly High, Fly Low" is based on the children’s book written by author Don Freeman. Winner of a Caldecott Honor, this heartwarming story about overcoming adversity and life’s challenges to find happiness, features Sid the pigeon, who is very choosy about finding just the right home in the magnificent city of San Francisco. And find it he does, in the loop of a huge “B” in an electric sign high up on a skyscraper. Sid's view of San Francisco is without equal. So Sid asks the lovely dove Midge to share his home. But one morning, while Midge is taking her turn sitting on two eggs, disaster strikes. A truck comes and workers take down the letters on the skyscraper one by one………….
This performance will include a wonderfully entertaining narrator, Jennifer Reason, Classical Host for Capitol Public Radio, along with live musical accompaniment by the award-winning and nationally recognized DHS Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Angelo Moreno, as well as dancers from the Sacramento Contemporary Dance Theatre Company, choreographed and directed by Jacob Gutiérrez-Montoya. It will also introduce your students to all the different sounds and look of the many string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments represented in a symphony orchestra. At the end of the show, students will have the opportunity to see all these instruments up close and talk to the student musicians.
This is an annual performance series that is supported by the DHS-Holmes Orchestra Boosters. Additional funding also comes from a Tandem Properties grant and the Li Family Foundation.
