Two Can’t Miss Classical Concerts: Patti Smith Narrating Tubby the Tuba and Disney’s Fantasia Live
It's a rare thing when a true punk icon and kiddie culture intertwine. The last time we remember it happening was when Iggy Pop starred on that Nickelodeon show. And now legendary singer-songwriter Patti Smith is going to narrate Tubby the Tuba for Little Orchestra Society.
We've written about Little Orchestra Society's interactive classical concerts in the past. The musicians, costumed performers and conductor always do a great job of turning kids on to the works of Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Britten and Gershwin, to name a few. But the next two Happy Concerts for school-age kids—Tubby and a rendition of Disney's famed Fantasia—sound like particularly memorable experiences for both kids and parents.
