The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, led by Paul Hostetter, will take the stage at 3:30 p.m. to perform Paddington Bear’s First Concert, which will be narrated by Timothy Pappas and other orchestra favorites. Paddington Bear, found at Paddington Station by Mr. and Mrs. Brown, is a polite bear who loves to explore and learn. One day, while visiting his friend Mr. Gruber, he reveals he’s never attended a live orchestra concert. Join Paddington Bear as he attends his first orchestra concert and learns about “Surprising” symphonies, instrument families, and discovers his love of music and conducting.
