Tony nominee John Tartaglia (Avenue Q) will join The Little Orchestra Society at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center on May 17 for two performances of Lemony Snicket's The Composer Is Dead, a narrative with music by composer Nathaniel Stookey. The show is part of The Little Orchestra Society's popular Happy Concerts for Young People series for children ages 6 to 12.

The Composer Is Dead invites audiences to join The Inspector as he investigates a mystery by playfully interrogating suspects in every section of the orchestra. The story will be narrated by Tartaglia, known for his Tony-nominated performance in Avenue Q.

"The Composer Is Dead is a fantastically entertaining and unique way to introduce young people to classical music, as well as entertain audiences of all ages with its wickedly funny story," said James Judd, music director of The Little Orchestra Society.

Lemony Snicket (the pen name of American author Daniel Handler) is the author of the popular collection of children's books A Series of Unfortunate Events.

The Little Orchestra Society has been performing innovative concerts of classical music for audiences of all ages since 1947.
