The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center will play a new musical and magical version of a very ancient story about an elephant, a monkey, a rabbit, and a bird who must learn to get along. Featuring a Japanese flute called the shinobue, Irish folk drums, a cello, and bass trombone—guess which instrument is which animal! Musicians from the Silk Road Project and Global Musicians Workshop join composer and host Bruce Adolphe to play his new and ancient tale plus new and improvised music on unusual instruments. Recommended for ages 6-12.
