Production History

E.B. White’s classic novel is now a brilliant symphonic concert experience. The Trumpet of the Swan, like all of White’s novels, concerns a youngster who must overcome a problem. In Louis’s case, he is a trumpeter swan born without a voice.  On an epic journey of challenge and discovery, Louis finds the gift of music through his father’s heartbreaking and heroic love.  Originally produced at The Kennedy Center, The Baltimore Sun said that The Trumpet of the Swan “sets the gold standard for children’s productions … utterly enchanting – easily holds its own alongside classics like ‘Peter and the Wolf.’”

There will be a Los Angeles Premiere coming  soon!
