The Musical Tales of The ORCHESTRA MICE
AN AMERICAN PREMIERE for ORCHESTRA and BALLET
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, SEEGER CHAPEL
"Are you one of the orchestra men?" asked Clariss,
Her heart skipping a beat with the shock of all this
"Well, no," said the stranger, "but my name is Sam,
And an orchestra MOUSE is more like what I am.
First performed in Germany in 2005 to rave reviews, this will be the U.S. premiere of Jacqueline Jackson's book, THE ORCHESTRA MICE, set to the music of Beethoven, Bach, Schubert, Mozart and Brahms and brought to life by ballet dancers. This concert will act as a wonderful introduction for children to the instruments of the Symphony and to the joy of dancing by the City Youth Ballet.
Elementary and middle school children (public, private, special education, handicapped, and home-schooled) will be bussed in from eight counties in East Tennessee. Teachers will receive, in advance, an educational packet including a copy of the story text with illustrations, a suggested list of listening music and ballet videos, music and ballet trivia, games and puzzles, and a teacher/student evaluation form.
