China's first all-female percussion group, the Red Poppy Ladies, reinterpret the beloved folk tale Mulan. The story of a legendary heroine who disguised herself as a man to take her father's place in battle was also turned into a famed Disney animated film in 1998. But the Red Poppy Ladies' version mixes kung fu with traditional drumming as a backdrop to this inspiring tale of courage and family loyalty. Famed for their appearance at the Beijing Olympics, these professionally-trained musicians have performed throughout the world. Learn More

We took our grandkids aged 6. We all loved it. David Alan MIller started out with Tchaikofsky's Nutcracker, played a little Borodin, Mussorsky's Baba Yaga from Pictures at an ex[edition and then Stravinsky's teacher Rimsky Korsakov
Dance of the Tumblirs, my grandaughter pointed out shed just heard that at her mother's band recital.And then a beautifully done Puppet show with the terrific orchestra of the Firebird. done with Bunraku influenced puppetry. THere were lots of kids there aged around 5-7 and it lasted about an hour and a quarter. It was magical and beaautifl. Absoluately wonderful for all of us!
