Album Notes
Willie was Different is a charming children's story written by the celebrated American painter, Norman Rockwell. Composer Seymour Barab brings this whimsical tale to life with flute, clarinet, piano, and narration. Willie (personified by the clarinet) is a bird who can't quite fit in and flies off to find himself. He meets Miss Polly, the town librarian, who just happens to play the flute. The two of them share the joy and magic of their music and forge a lasting friendship. Expertly narrated by Charles Schneider, this uplifting and inspiring piece will capture the attention of children at any age, and will live in their hearts forever.

Whether it's a whimsical children's tale, an impressionist musical poem, or an exhilarating rhythmic work, trio@play performs music that appeals to all ages and musical tastes. Longtime friends and collaborators Kevin Willois, Kenneth Ellison, and Lynda Saponara have joined forces to bring inspiring new music from modern-day composers to the concert stage.

Was just reminded to pull this out again. Kids LOVE it and it is an awesome way to get children acclimated to classical music and story. Love.


What a great recording! The playing is top notch, and my young son loves it!
