Wow - talk about fun and energizing music! I have never been a real big classical music fan, but after listening to these CD's, I'm hooked! These symphonies are done with outrageously funny lyrics set to great classical music! They are filled with fact and fancy about the world's most notable composers and their masterpieces. Sing along with 'Beethoven's Wig' to his 5th Symphony, 'Tchaikovsky's Cannonball' to his 1812 Overture, 'Stuck in the Saddle Again' to Suppe's Light Cavalry Overture, and more. There are 11 symphonies per CD . Also included are the lyrics so you can sing along, and there are 2 questions at the bottom of each page with answers in the back. There are also suggested activities for each symphony. Once you have sung along, there is also an Orchestral Performance of each symphony without the lyrics. These CD's have won several awards including Parent's Choice Award and the NAPPA Gold Award. ~ Phyllis
