THE BIG THREE: BEETHOVEN'S WIG
May 25, 2006
Classical music was never supposed to be this much fun. Was it? Indeed it was, says Richard Perlmutter, creator of the group Beethoven's Wig, which has put out three whimsical Sing Along Symphonies albums, each taking familiar classical pieces and turning them into interactive, family-friendly songs. And Saturday, Beethoven's Wig will perform a zany family concert at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, under conductor Andrew Constantine. Children and adults can sing along (yes, sing along) to classics by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach and other composers. There will also be a preview mini-concert and autograph-signing of the new CD Beethoven's Wig 3 by Perlmutter at Barnes & Noble, 1 E. Joppa Road, Towson, at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow.
