The Composer Is Dead

Calling all sneaky sleuths and would-be detectives! Who snuffed out the composer? Was it the shifty string section, or maybe the treacherous trombones? Every instrument in the Orchestra is a suspect! With music by Nathaniel Stookey and text by Lemony Snicket, The Composer Is Dead is a hilarious whodunit for the whole family.

Sound the trumpets! We've added a free, interactive Instrument Discovery Zone to our YPC pre-concert lobby activities. Be sure to arrive early for a chance to play a wide variety of orchestral instruments yourself. You may just discover one that strikes a chord with you! Before the concert starts, you'll also get to hear a lobby performance by the Cello Fellows.
