Book Sharing Monday :: The Composer is Dead

For the last couple of weeks, we have been doing an informal unit study on the orchestra. We will be attending an education concert in April at the Windsor Symphony Orchestra and I thought it would helpful to learn a little bit more about the orchestra before we go. I will be sharing what we are doing in a seperate post.

One book that we have really enjoyed is written by Lemony Snicket, with an accompanying CD by Nathaniel Stookey. The title is "The Composer is Dead" and the book is an excellent story that takes us through the different sections of the orchestra.

"We were doing bird imitations," said the Flutes, the shiniest and highest pitched of the woodwinds. "It seems like that's all we ever do. Whenever the orchestra needs a bird, there we are."
