Have Some Turkey with Orchestra Miami!
This year, Orchestra Miami is serving up some turkey for Thanksgiving- Tom Turkey, that is! Orchestra Miami’s Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Family Fun Concert Series returns with Tough Turkey in the Big City: A Feathered Tale with music by Bruce Adolphe and story by Louise Gikow.
What happens when a turkey from the sticks meets a Park Avenue pigeon? With the feel of an old-time radio story, Tough Turkey in the Big City follows the comic blunders of Tom Turkey, who leaves the farm to try his luck in the big city. The story illustrates a close call with a menacing chef, a tussle at the “Turkey Club”, a brief romance with a pigeon, and a happy mix-up at the Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s a big-hearted story of a plucky bird on an unexpected journey.
Tom is portrayed by the bass trombone and his barnyard friends by the violin and clarinet. The music of the farm is a swinging barnyard counterpoint, while the music of the city recalls the smoky jazz of film noir. There’s also some fun march music at the parade, and hot Latin rhythms at the Turkey Club.
Tough Turkey will be performed by soloists from Orchestra Miami and narrated by Joanna Kaye. The performance lasts approximately 1 hour and is appropriate for all ages. Complimentary cookies and juice served after the show!
