Eeyore has a Birthday by Jon Deak

Tuesday, December 3, 2013
in Wilbraham, MA
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
in Arlington, MA

This concert program is a thrilling and delightful musical setting of A.A.Milne‚Äôs story Eeyore Has a Birthday from the Winnie-the-Pooh series, one of the most delightful literary collections for children. Composed by Jon Deak, each instrument assumes a role in the story; the ever-mournful Eeyore is personified by the viola; the gastronomically oriented Pooh Bear by the double bass; and the eager, bumbling Piglet by the piano.This program is presented in collaboration with Young Audiences of Massachusetts (YAMA) -an organization dedicated to bringing live music to school children in the Greater Boston area. 

 

These performances are private in-school events scheduled through YAMA (Young Audiences of Massachusetts). To make a booking for this programCLICK HERE. 

Just Released:

Eric Moe and Firebird Ensemble "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch"

Eric Moe's music has been variously described as "maximal minimalism", "Rachmaninoff in hell", and "music of winning exuberance". Moe's imaginative titles are little stories or images suggestive of parts of innumerable and widely scattered fictions. Many suggest a kind of poignant humor, or an inside joke that he and the listener share: "Meanwhile Back at the Ranch" is one such title, the cliched phrase from which Western movies use to keep the audience from being thrown by a zealous edit. Buy Now!
