Paul Tripp and George Kleinsinger's 1945 musical narrative has over the years been brought to life by such celebrated voices as Danny Kaye, Dick Van Dyke and Meredith Vieira. Today, influential singer-songwriter and National Book Award-winner Patti Smith narrates the story, one of her childhood favorites, about a tuba who journeys to find a song of his own. (Smith writes about meeting Kleinsinger and seeing his original score in her 2010 memoir Just Kids.) Through the rocker's enthusiastic reading, young concertgoers will learn how music can come from the most unexpected places, from the tapping of a shoe to the striking of a mallet. Ages 6 to 12.
