Tubby the Tuba narrated by Patti Smith

Tubby the Tuba narrated by Patti Smith

Dedicated to introducing children to the world of classical music, The Little Orchestra Society has been putting on family-friendly events for 65 years.

Tubby the Tuba, a childhood favorite of punk rock musician and National Book Award-winner Patti Smith, is a whimsical piece that tells the story of a plucky tuba out searching for a song all its own.

No doubt the adults will be getting something very different from this concert than their children, but both will enjoy it.

Swedish Cottage Performance: Little Miss Muffet’s Monster-Sitting Service

Little Miss Muffet’s Monster-Sitting Service tells the story of Molly
Muffet (the great–great–great–great granddaughter of the original,
“Little Miss Muffet”) and what happens when she ends up home alone while
her parents leave for a high school reunion. Molly’s grandfather is
called in to babysit but gets stranded by a snowstorm in Alaska. As a
last resort, he calls in an old family friend, Aloisius Albrecht Alviss
Spider (Al for short), the original spider from the famed nursery rhyme.
Molly and Al quickly become friends and hatch a plan to start a
baby–sitting service for baby monsters while her parents are away.

As
the night progresses and baby monsters get dropped off, Molly and Al
receive news that the storm of the century is heading their way. Molly,
Al and the babies bunker down for what promises to be a long night
filled with music, song, dance and numerous surprises.
