Teddy Bear Series: The Giant's Violin

The Teddy Bear Concert Series introduces preschool & kindergarten students (ages 3-7) to the orchestra through story, movement, and live music. Each program features an original story, written by ISO violinist Victoria Griswold, and five musicians from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. 

The Giant's Violin follows the adventures of a young boy who discovers a giant violin in his attic! This story will introduce your little ones to the string instruments of the orchestra with excerpts from Camille Saint-Saëns classic, Carnival of the Animals.
