About the Program

Lemony Snicket’s murder-mystery picture book “The Composer is Dead” comes to life in Nathaniel Stookey’s imaginative composition for orchestra. It’s a fun, lively “whodunit” designed to introduce children to the instruments in an orchestra as the musicians—and even the conductor—are interrogated by the Inspector. Who killed the composer? Help us solve the mystery!
