“Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant”

“The half-hour composition, with the celebrated poet [Jack Prelutsky] narrating, proved to be a hit with the young audiences at the four youth concerts and the Sunday Family Festival Concert, all under the enthusiastic direction of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra’s Assistant Conductor, Philip Mann.  Richman’s clever orchestration mirrored Prelutsky’s imaginative texts and gave the young listeners a wonderful taste of the varied textures of orchestral sounds.”
