Orchestrating the Perfect Thursday Morning

In the homeschool community there is an amazing game of "telephone" that takes place via email. Someone gets a notice that this or that great event is taking place and has extra room (fewer schools are doing things these days thanks to all the testing) and the event coordinator is opening it up to homeschoolers. Just such a heavily forwarded message reached me a couple of weeks ago and we scored four seats to the Young People's Concert series with the Huntsville Orchestra's performance of Lemony Snicket's the Composer is Dead. It was the perfect mix of formal orchestration and hilarious hijinx.

The Composer Is Dead
If you have the chance to visit the family concert (also FREE) this Saturday, I would highly recommend it. I would also suggest printing out this great guide to go with the visit!
