Babar The Elephant

  • Babar the Elephant by Phoenix Woodwind Quintet


In this classic story by Jean de Brunhoff with music by Francis Poulenc, children discover the instruments of the woodwind quintet, learn to recognize instrumental sounds and moods, and hear the difference between melody and accompaniment and woodwind and brass. A gifted actor-storyteller narrates the tale of Babar, a baby elephant who loses his mother to hunters. His coronation and wedding culminate in a great ball for all the jungle animals—and the audience.
