Through orchestral performances, I have the great privilege of blending my talents in both storytelling and music. My repertoire ranges from recent compositions to old favorites and the classics, and I bring a unique style of animation and vitality to my tales which often accompany great orchestral presentations.
The best-known narrative works I perform are Mr. Smith's Composition, Playing with Style, Peter and the Wolf, Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, and Night on Bald Mountain.
I have also developed a series of one-hour family concert programs, embracing many of the best-known classical and popular compositions:
The Celebrated Case of the Storybook People versus the Wolf
A Tuneful Afternoon
As a skilled designer of family musical entertainment, I can tailor a program to suit your specific audience, its taste, and its expectations. I draw on my unique range of orchestral repertoire to bring an exceptional measure of talent and creativity to well-known musical selections, delighting audiences of all ages.
