Program Notes

A delightful musical story about a dog and her day-long celebration of life as told by various instruments, Sadie’s Birthday Adventures offers a moment of audience participation and invites discussion about the individual voices (instruments) chosen to tell this tale. Children will enjoy the frog (bass trombone), butterfly (glockenspiel), and a romp in the forest with a chipmunk (full ensemble). Sadie’s Birthday Adventures was commissioned in 2016 by the Philadelphia Orchestra for its Sound All Around series of children’s interactive concerts.
