Family Concert – Elepantastic Adventures!

Family concert – elephantastic adventure!

Since 1931, Babar, the gentle elephant with a liking for the urban lifestyle, has been delighting generations of children as the hero of a series of French children’s books by Jean de Brunhoff. The American composer Raphael Mostel has set to music the story of Babar’s honeymoon in a hot-air balloon, a journey that develops very differently than originally planned. Scholars of the Orchestra Academy bring to their audience young and old a musical adventure of a special kind.
