The Conductor's Spellbook

During a field trip to the symphony, young Tony Stradivarius finds a powerful book of spells and uses it to control the orchestra. The Conductor's Spellbook is an exciting and interactive concert experience that introduces young audiences to music, orchestral instruments, and conducting!
