The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra's opening OrKIDStra concert last month, a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Iolanthe," took its audience on a trip to Fairyland, complete with wands and wings. This weekend's show, "A Tour of World Flutes with Orchestra," covers pretty much the entire globe, as represented by 13 different flutes, from pennywhistle to shakuhachi and pan flute, from countries including China, Japan, Ireland, and Romania. World flutist Tereasa Payne will join the RPO to share music and stories about her instruments, all reinforcing the lesson that even though we may all look different, we are all connected. Guest conductor Matthew Kraemer will lead the RPO in this musical adventure for kids. Another RPO family concert worth noting: The RPO is performing the score to "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" set to the full movie on Friday, November 3, and Saturday, November 4, 7 p.m. both nights, at Kodak Hall (60 Gibbs Street). Tickets are $24-$77.

The RPO will host "A Tour of World Flutes with Orchestra" on Sunday, November 5, at Hochstein Performance Hall, 50 North Plymouth Avenue. 2 p.m. $14 for kids; $19 adults. 454-2100,
