Marjocotton, a very lonely double bass, discovers an oddly-shaped ocarina (ancient flute) which suddenly transports her on a magical adventure around the world. As she travels from one continent to another, she discovers some interesting musical friends who help her along the way. Featuring two dynamic string players from Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra who share the same first name, you’ll hear brilliant works from far-off lands including Austria, Russia, and China that will have you clapping and dancing in your seat!
