The program will feature work for a chamber ensemble and narrator, and will be a setting of Rudyard Kipling’s tales of animal origins, the “Just So Stories”. With 6 instrumental performers (instruments may include violin, cello, bass, and/or flute, clarinet and piano) and a narrator, “Just So Stories” will feature each instrument taking a different animal or character in the stories, allowing children in the audience to follow the plot and understand the special sounds and nuances of each instrument. There will also be a “petting zoo” of the instruments after the performances.
This concert has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the San Francisco Arts Commission. Additional support provided by Salesforce.org.
