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.
