Come enjoy “Maybe, a Mouse,” an original children’s story featuring audience participation and musical accompaniment by members of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. Created by MSO principal oboist Joseph Salvalaggio, Babu Press performances use classical music to help kids develop an appreciation for the arts and foster a love of reading. The performances are entertaining for audiences of all ages, from toddlers to adults.
This performance features MSO musicians Barrie Cooper (violin), Mark Wallace (cello), and Joseph Salvalaggio (oboe) and will be narrated by Todd Berry.
