​DESCRIPTION

In this special Symphony Storytime series, the power of music and the beauty of storytelling are perfectly combined to bring a true story to life. Enjoy live music presented by musicians of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra along with narration as we celebrate the wonderful illustrations of Bryan Collier and the story of musician Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews. Featuring a New Orleans jazz style ensemble, students will watch and listen as the trumpet, trombone, tenor sax, and sousaphone tell the inspiring story of Trombone Shorty.

Trombone Shorty is based on Troy Andrews’ life, how he followed his dream of becoming a musician, despite the odds, until he reached international stardom. Hailing from the Tremé neighborhood in New Orleans, Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews got his nickname by wielding a trombone twice as long as he was high. A prodigy, he was leading his own band by age six, and today this Grammy-nominated artist headlines the legendary New Orleans Jazz Fest!

NOTE: This ticket does NOT include admission into the galleries. This ticket is ONLY admission to the concert. Separate tickets need to be purchased for gallery admission.
