Carnival and Umbrellaphant in Indiana

On Sunday, April 6, 2014, at 2:00 PM, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic will feature THE CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS by Saint-Saëns, using my verses in a live narration. They will also perform the delightful musical setting of BEHOLD THE BOLD UMBRELLAPHANT composed by Lucas Richman. This work was premiered by the San Diego Symphony in 2009, and released as a recording in 2011 (Naxos). For more information on this Fort Wayne Philharmonic Family Concert, check out:

Music was my first love, long before I became a writer, so I’m tickled that orchestras and chamber music festivals around the country have been performing both of these works.
