Ignite your imagination with humor, drama and dance as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra unites with the visual theater of Magic Circle Mime Company. You and your family will learn about the Orchestra, its music and the art of listening on this Magical Music Adventure.

"Many emotions are experienced at a symphony concert but wonderment is seldom one of them...It was as if everyone in the audience had created the magic himself."
– Seattle Post Intelligencer

This program, which received the Washington State Arts Commission's highest rating for quality, introduces new audiences to the workings of a concert orchestra and explores the active relationship between the listening audience and the musician. The art of listening requires talent and training. "The Listener" establishes this important concept through fifty minutes of humor, drama, and dance; leaving the audience appreciating their own abilities as well as the orchestra's.

In the dramatic storyline, the conductor has prepared a program of music from the various artistic disciplines but finds his efforts complicated by the unexpected participation of two audience members. Musical challenges between bugle and trumpet and tap dancing to ballet music are just part of the action as these two characters and the audience learn about the orchestra, it's music, and the art of listening.
