Describes the features, sounds, and role of each musical instrument in the orchestra. Have you ever met an orchestra? Well, here's your chance! Meet the rabbit with her flute, the koala cellist, the tuba-playing warthog, the alligator on the drums. This unusual introduction to the orchestra describes the instrument-strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion- and offers interesting information about them. Playful illustrations show the animal musicians as they gather for an evening's performance. Then the conductor lowers his baton, and the wonderful music begins. "This lyrical romp through the orchestra begins with animal musicians slowly gathering for the evening performance. Poetic descriptions suggest the sounds of the instruments, and lively watercolor illustrations capture the playful essence of each musician and musical instrument. 'It's a smashing introduction to classical music, and a must prior to a first visit to the symphony.'"--Publishers Weekly
