About This Show

This timeless classic by George Kleinsinger, with libretto by Paul Tripp, was a childhood favorite of our guest narrator, Patti Smith, and her enthusiasm for it will bring a new perspective to this whimsical and touching piece of music. Hear Tubby the Tuba’s melody ring throughout the orchestra and learn how melodies and soloists can come from the most unexpected places, even the tapping of a shoe, or the striking of a mallet. Ms. Smith is a National Book Award-winning author, rock musician, photographer and poet.
