DVORAK: Carnival Overture
KREISLER: Praeludium and Allegro (Junior 1st Prize Winner)
STOOKEY: The Composer is Dead (text: Lemony Snicket)

There’s dreadful news from the Long Centre — the composer is dead! The musicians are most certainly guilty of something. Where were the violins on the night in question? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too boisterously? Everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. Join the Inspector as he interrogates all the unusual suspects in a concert based on the book by Lemony Snicket with the music of Nathaniel Stookey. Join us for a diabolically fun-filled murder-mystery afternoon, as we explore the crime — and the orchestra’s family of instruments.
