Green Golly and Her Golden Flute

Spring 2011 Storytelling
Ages: 4 - 10 yrs.
Producer: Tugboat Music
CD Price: $14.99
Review:

This cleverly designed modern version of Rapunzel incorporates a wide variety of classical music and well known composers into its story production. A trio of performers constructed, assembled, and produced a dramatic and invigorating array of songs with masterfully comedic character voices and talented musicians.

Listeners not only experience composers such as Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Schubert, Frederic Chopin, and Nicholai Rimsky-Korsakov, but they also become enraptured with what happens to Green Golly (alias, Rapunzel) in her own personal narrative adventure. Along the way are many story tidbits for later reflection. After the story ends, each classical piece is repeated on separate tracks, allowing for review and reinforcement of the musical information.

Although intended for a younger set, listeners of all ages will enjoy this delightful adventure in both story and song.
