Welcome to the Symphony features whimsical renderings of mice attending a classical music concert. As two of the mice wonder at the spectacle, their knowledgeable pal explains the inner workings of the event, elucidating such terms as "pitch," "symphony," "dynamics," "themes," "orchestra," and the various musical instruments the trio sees on the stage. He even informs his friends (and little readers) about Beethoven and encourages everyone to sing along to the famous "da-da-da-daah!" of the Fifth Symphony. The helpful critter then directs his audience to listen to several instruments (including a violin, a cello, a flute, a French horn, timpani, and more) by pushing the coordinating buttons on the built-in sound panel. Welcome to the Symphony is a truly entertaining way to begin fostering a lifelong love for classical music. For budding musicians ages 4 to 8. (MW)
