Jopan kenendy narrates A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra

Mrs. Joan Bennett Kennedy (R) is presented a bouquet of red roses by her daughter Kara (L) after narrating “A Young Person’s Guide to the orchestra” with the Boston Pops Orchestra at Boston’s Symphony Hall on June 26, 1983. The concert marked Mrs. Kennedy’s debut with John Williams and the Boston Pops. The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, op.34 is a musical composition by Benjamin Britten in 1945 with a subtitle "Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell". The work is one of the best-known pieces by the composer, and is one of the three popularly-used scores in children's music education, together with Saint-Saëns' The Carnival of the Animals and Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
