SYMPHONY FOR A BROKEN ORCHESTRA How Philadelphia Collected Sounds to Save Music

by | Read by Tyla Collier, Robert Blackson

Children Ages 6+ • 8 mins. • Unabridged • © 2022

There's warmth and enthusiasm as Robert Blackson explains that the Symphony for a Broken Orchestra--Philadelphia's public initiative to repair broken instruments and bring music back to the schools--came about when he discovered an abandoned school gym filled with damaged pianos. Tyla Collier's voice brings the music of this enchanting story to listeners. Her melodic tones delightfully mirror the sounds of various instruments that sound beautiful even as they fall into disrepair. Collier's and Blackson's performances are sure to result in requests for encores of this compact and cheery production, especially from budding musicians and future patrons of the arts.
