If you have ever heard an orchestra play, then you know that musicians are most certainly guilty of something. Where exactly were the violins on the night in question? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too much? In this perplexing mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument.

Help the Inspector solve the crime as he interrogates all the unusual suspects with great music from the Orchestra. Hear for yourself exactly what took place on that fateful, “well-orchestrated” performance of The Composer is Dead by Nathaniel Stookey with text by Lemony Snicket.

Join us for a free pre-concert festival at 10am in Rhythm Hall, featuring our Instrument Petting Zoo. Enjoy interactive activities for the whole family that will enhance your concert experience.
