The Orchestra, The Orchestra!
Expectations run high on this very special night, as children wait for beautiful music to begin. What a shock when the first notes heard are the screeching and groaning of noisy instruments. "Who can fix these broken sounds, topsy turvy, upside down?" The eventual arrival of the conductor to make music out of muddle may be predictable, but there is a surprise in store. The Orchestra, The Orchestra! whimsically entertains while it educates children ages 3-8 about the symphony orchestra and its journey from sound to song. JoAnn Falletta, an internationally known grownup conductor and classical guitarist, inspired this charming story.
