We are thrilled to have Barbara Browne back performing Francis Poulenc (1899-1963): The Story of Babar the Elephant, for piano and narrator (1940) with words by Jean de Brunhof. If you missed her a few months ago please don’t this time. Barbara is a fantastic pianist and her narration of this delightful story will make your day. If you don’t know the piece, apparently Poulenc’s three-year-old cousin Sophie, who did not appreciate Poulenc’s musical style, placed her copy of “Babar the Elephant” upside down on the piano’s music stand and said, “Play this.” Poulenc then added accompaniment to the text for Sophie who invited all her friends to come hear. Barbara is performing this delightful piece in the store on Sat morning August 11 at 11:00. Children of all ages (0-100) are invited!
