Album Notes
In the tradition of Peter and the Wolf, Maestro Classics presents Ernest Lawrence Thayer’s classic American poem, Casey at the Bat, with original music composed and conducted by Stephen Simon. Created for the bicentennial in 1976 and performed on the Stories in Music™ children’s series at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, this classic poem is brought to life in an inspired, exciting way.
Maestro Classics’ Stories in Music series is designed to introduce children and families to the joys of classical music through stories. We hope that you will listen together with family and friends, be educated as well as entertained, and, as the final notes fade, discover that you have a new musical memory.

The series that originated at the Kennedy Center has been recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, probably the finest recording orchestra in the world, ensuring superior quality.

Other CDs in the series: Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, Juanita the Spanish Lobster (also available in Spanish language edition Juanita la langosta española), The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Peter and the Wolf, The Story of Swan Lake, Carnival of the Animals, My Name is Handel, The Tortoise and the Hare and The Soldier's Tale.

Each CD is a combination of music and educational information, designed to develop listening skills and place music in a historical perspective. They are appropriate people of all ages who want to learn more about classical music.

Three significant benefits:
Discover the magical sounds of the symphony orchestra.
Encourage adults and children to listen to music together.
Hone listening skills and accumulate musical memories.

Recommended for car trips, school carpooling, music teachers, and elementary school teachers who want to include music in their classrooms.

Casey at the Bat
This poem is so much fun to listen to; I loved the musical back ground. A real work of art that I like to share with friends and family while driving. It is most interesting to learn about the background of the poem. I also learned about music. Altogether delightfull!
