Musical Storytime In Storyland – Where The Wild Things Are

This fall Storyland in City Park is trying something new. They are working together with the Louisiana Philharmonic orchestra and invite you to come over and enjoy “Musical Storytime.”

The event series will take place on Saturdays from 10:30am to 11am under the Storyland castle. On Saturday November 7 you and your children will be treated to a musical journey of Where The Wild Things Are. Clarinetist Daniel Parrette will play to accompany Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are.

What To Expect At Musical Storytime

The musician will play a demo on their instrument, explain a little bit about their instrument and their background, then we’ll read the story with musical accompaniment. Finally, the reader will have Q&A if kids want to ask the musician anything at all! This experience is free with $5 admission to Storyland.
