The Remarkable Farkle McBride by John Lithgow
Join your Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra for a musical production of “The Remarkable Farkle McBride by John Lithgow”.
The remarkable Farkle McBride is a musical prodigy. He can play the violin, flute, trombone and drums with incredible skill, but something is missing. No matter how hard he tries he just isn’t satisfied with the sound of any of the instruments playing alone. In this KSO adaptation of John Lithgow’s popular children’s book, a young musician brings the sounds and rhythms of an orchestra to life.
Illustrator C.F. Payne will be joining us for The Remarkable Farkle McBride concert. To celebrate we have partnered with Bookbug and have books available for purchase. You will have the opportunity to have your book signed by C.F. Payne before the concert! Contact either the KSO office or Bookbug to order your book today!
