MOB is striving to bring classical music to children in an engaging and exciting format.
Our goal is for children to obtain a recognition, and a deep appreciation for great classical music. In our CDs, "Music
Tales" and "Music Tales vol. 2," children will hear themes and melodies from the greatest music of
all time, while listening to some of their favorite stories and fairy tales.
Each selection on was created and is performed by MOB. The first four selections on "Music
Tales" are popular children's stories and fairy tales. The following two selections are works by contemporary
American composers. The final two selections on the recording inspire children to settle down and fall into a calm, peaceful
sleep. The album was recorded in July, 2006 at the Siesta Key Chapel in Sarasota, FL.
"Music Tales vol. 2" was recorded in 2009 at St. John's United Methodist Church in
Sarasota. The selections continue the creative blend of stories and music. Included are the classic fairy tales
Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood. Also we have set childrens' poetry by Ogden Nash
and e.e. cummings. The American classics Pecos Bill and Big Red Barn round out this engaging albumn.
