pieces, humor, and irrepressible singing. Venues have ranged from

A Symphony of Whales In
the winter of 1984-1985, nearly 3,000 whales were found trapped
in the Senyavina Straight of Siberia. With the bitter cold, the
water was freezing rapidly... In this work, award-winning musician
and author Steve Schuch has taken the inspiration of a real life
event - the musical rescue of these trapped whales - and conjured
a truly memorable tale. A Symphony of Whales is available
as a solo performance, a book, and a Multimedia Orchestral show. More
