The Magique Flute offers school demonstrations and performances at children’s events of “Animal Tails” by composer Margaret LaFrance.
Inspired by stuffed and china animals, this collection is perfect for introducing children to different musical sounds — some harmonious, some dissonant — in a humorous and fun way. Adults like the collection, as well! The entire collection was first performed in Boston several years ago. In April, 2011, flutists Mary Cobb and Margaret LaFrance performed five of the pieces from the collection at a concert in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Please enjoy listening to this live performance with humorous commentary by Margaret. If you would like to have one or more of these pieces performed for your children’s event or as a demonstration in your classroom, or if you would like to perform the pieces yourself, please contact The Magique Flute.
The pieces you will hear in this performance: “Little Sheep with the Purple Feet;” “Bear Dreams;” “Betsy’s Waltz;” “My Green Hungarian China Cat;” “Phantom, a Lion (for Jill)”.
