Come to Alice Tully Hall to hear a new musical and magical version of a very ancient story about an elephant, a monkey, a rabbit, and a bird who must learn to get along. Featuring a Japanese flute called the shinobue, Irish folk drums, a cello, and bass trombone—guess which instrument is which animal! Musicians from the Silk Road Project and Global Musicians Workshop join composer Bruce Adolphe to play his new-and-ancient tale plus new and improvised music on unusual instruments.
Musical Instrument Petting Zoo in the lobby from 1:00-1:45 PM, free for ticket holders.
