Program

Ferdinand was a bad composer, and he stole music from Franz in order to pass his school exam. He confessed and was forgiven by Franz. In this fun version of the true story, Ferdinand tries desperately to compose a good accompaniment to the “Trout” melody, but Franz comes up with a better one. This concert is offered for kids ages 6-12 and features the music of Franz Schubert played by musicians from The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, hosted by composer Bruce Adolphe.
