Synopsis by Linda J. Shriver
Sesame Street goes to the Boston Pops. Viewers see Baby Bear go to the Boston Symphony Hall, meeting conductor Keith Lockhart. The conductor shows Baby Bear the assortment of instruments played to portray the characters in Peter and the Wolf. This is the portal to the forest and Peter's tale. A costumed Elmo is Peter during solos of the violin. The French horn heralds the entrance of the not so scary wolf. The bassoon symbolizes the grandfather, Big Bird. The video introduces preschoolers to the experience of hearing an orchestra with the help of the familiar characters from Sesame Street.
