“A great symphonic entertainment!” —Iceland Music Export

Maximus Musicus Visits the Orchestra is a wondrous and creative musical story introducing young children to the instruments and instrument families of the orchestra. Written in 2008 by Hallfríður Ólafsdóttir, principal flautist of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, Maxi’s adventures take him on a tour of the symphonic orchestra through their rehearsal of classic pieces by Beethoven and Ravel, as he leaps, scurries and climbs among the instruments. Presented in live performance, this New York première of Maximus’s story features the Orchestra of St. Luke’s conducted by Karina Canellakis, a fanfare commissioned specifically for this event composed by Tryggvi M. Baldvinsson, and is narrated by the author herself. This concert of musical storytelling promises to excite, engage and educate students about the joys of playing in an orchestra.
