YOUNG PERSON’S GUIDE TO THE ORCHESTRA

Text and music by Benjamin Britten
Designed / Directed by Sara Valentine & Michael Boudewyns

Fusing the styles of a museum curator and a school librarian, with a sprinkling of Mary Poppins, Really Inventive Stuff presents Britain's own
Symphonia Semi d'Quaver, the internationally renowned "Orchestra-ologist," consummate animateur, and devoted fan of Henry Purcell, who hosts Benjamin Britten's classic introduction to the orchestra with wit and a wink.
