Young Farkle McBride is a musical genius. He plays the violin, the flute, the trombone, and the drums with incredible skill, but he is never satisfied. Something is always missing! Farkle explores each instrument of the orchestra and eventually figures out exactly how he can happily be part of a symphony - he can conduct ALL of the instruments of the orchestra!
This enchanting story, introducing the instruments of the orchestra, was written by actor John Lithgow and orchestrated by composer Bill Elliott.
The narrator (Mark Baldin) will take listeners on a tour of the orchestra through many musical styles and familiar themes. Be sure to come early for the instrument petting zoo that gives kids the opportunity to try different instruments and meet the musicians!
