New friends! Really Inventive Stuff is excited to pair with the University of Southern Maine’s student wind quintet.

Boys like Peter are not afraid of wolves...
Prokofiev's timeless tale of boy vs. wolf comes to life in Really Inventive Stuff's signature performance. A fully-staged vaudeville-inspired solo performance hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as "immensely like-able" and "using simplicity as a form of genius." Guaranteed to engage and inspire imaginations of all ages.

Cassation in G major for toys, oboe, horns & strings

Music by Leopold Mozart (formerly attributed to J. Haydn)

Squeaks, tweets, rattles and honks!!  Really Inventive Stuff brings you Professor Tympanium van Hammer zee Trumpeterclangor, a whimsical Austrian sound scientist, who travels the world with his amazing acoustical laboratory but needs your help to complete the melody of Mozart's The Toy Symphony. Come prepared to play along as the audience becomes the missing instrument.
