orKIDStra Concert and CD Launch Party!

On May 22, families gathered in the Performance Hall at Hochstein to witness the premiere of A Family for Baby Grand, a charming story that chronicles the journey of a baby grand piano who ventures out into the world to join an orchestra.

A Family for Baby Grand, with narration by Jennifer Carsillo, is one of the pieces on the RPO's newest children's CD, which also includes The Story of Babar by Francis Poulenc, narrated by actor John Lithgow.

Following the performance, audience members were treated to a CD launch party, also at Hochstein. The festive party—complete with cake!—brought together Michael Butterman, Jennifer Carsillo, and composer Brad Ross to autograph CDs and visit with well-wishers.

To purchase the RPO's newest CD, The Story of Babar & A Family for Baby Grand, visit the RPO Theatre Shop, call 454-2100, or click here.
