“Animal Tails” for Two Flutes

Betsy Takes Up Ballet

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.

Phantom, a Lion
