Brevard Symphony Orchestra brings comedy to a classical musical tale

The Brevard Symphony Orchestra finds musical inspiration in comedy for its 2022-2023 season POPS concert, Comedy Tonight.

In its 69th season, the Brevard Symphony Orchestra is ready to give comedy fans of all ages a musical treat filled with laughs and a new take on a classic tale.


According to a news release, the concert explores “comedy, satire, and wit as unlikely but quite viable sources of inspiration for music, featuring Henry Mancini’s The Pink Panther, and television themes from hit comedy shows such as ‘The Office,’ ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ and ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus’.”

The POPS concert will take place Feb. 4 at the King Center in Melbourne.

“The art of musical wit and satire will be on full display with a performance of musical satirist Peter Schickele’s Sneaky ‘Pete and the Wolf’ - a hilarious script that gives us a VERY different take on Prokofiev’s classic tale of ‘Peter and the Wolf’ without changing a single note of music,” said Brevard Symphony Orchestra music director and conductor Christopher Confessore.
