A brand new musical tale, with three double basses and a harp. Together with storyteller Ida Lod, we hear the exciting, magical tale of how the elephant got its trunk.
The story is loosely based on Rudyard Kipling’s How the Elephant Got His Trunk, and the double basses and harp are particularly well-suited here. The music is composed by Mats Nilsson, double bassist with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.The elephant travels all over Africa and meets remarkable figures. The little ones are welcome to play and dance along to the musical tale, of course.
After this approx. 30-minute concert, there is a chance to try out different instruments in the foyer.
