Who Stole the Mona Lisa?

Conducted by Music Director Constantine Kitsopoulos
October 6, 2013 | 3:00 PM
LeFrak Concert Hall

Did Picasso really steal the “Mona Lisa” from Paris’ famed Louvre Museum? A hundred years ago some people thought he did. See the New York premiere of Micah Chamber-Goldberg’s animated film “Who Stole the Mona Lisa” with its cast of zany “Pink Panther” and “Moulin Rouge” like characters as they romp through 1911 Paris trying to solve the mystery. This whimsical film is accompanied by the Queens Symphony Orchestra playing Stravinsky’s colorful Firebird Suite live and in person. This event is one that everyone will enjoy!

Meet the Instruments! Join us as we “warm up” for the afternoon’s concert, meet our musicians, and try out some instruments! Young participants will explore the day’s theme and learn more about the instruments that make up an orchestra!
LeFrak Concert Hall Atrium | 2:00 PM
