The Giant’s Violin, an original story written by ISO violinist Victoria Griswold and narrated by Perry Accetturo, ISO Learning Community, introduces preschoolers to the string instruments of the orchestra through story, movement and live music. The captivating tale features excerpts from Camille Saint-Saëns’ classic Carnival of the Animals and is performed by five ISO string players.
