Editorial Reviews


“An ideal way to introduce children to the magic of music—delightful, charming, wonderfully entertaining, beautifully illustrated.” —Gerard Schwarz, Music Director, the All-Star Orchestra

"Welcome to the Symphony [lives] up to the publisher's promise that children will enjoy it . . . it passed the 4-year-old test with flying colors." — The Washington Post

 “An ideal way to introduce children to the magic of music—delightful, charming, wonderfully entertaining, beautifully illustrated.”
–Gerard Schwarz, music director, The All-Star Orchestra and music director laureate, Seattle Symphony

-- Gerard Schwarz

"A delight for kids of any age! Educational, fun, a visual and aural treat, this book introduces children to the wonderful world of symphony music. With gorgeous illustrations, clear and straightforward descriptions of the instruments, and interactive buttons that play beautiful Beethoven, this will have your kids dragging you to the symphony! I simply adored it."
–Terry Kinney, director, actor, and co-founder of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
-- Terry Kinney

“Lively, beautifully written…a charming way to educate the next generation of concert-goers.”
–Orin O’Brien, double bassist, The New York Philharmonic

-- Orin O’Brien

“This beautiful book appeals on so many levels...The charming illustrations and brilliant musical recordings provide the perfect sensory stimuli, while the text illuminates every question a child might have about the experience in the most natural and satisfying way.”
–Dorothy Lawson, artistic director, Ethel String Quartet

-- Dorothy Lawson

"An introduction to one of the greatest of all classical works that quite wondrously includes not just words and pictures, but some of the music itself. And to think that the musicians playing the excerpts are young people as well, members of the New York Youth Symphony! What could be more inspiring?"–Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Listener's Encyclopedia of Classical Music
-- Ted Libbey
