Â?Classical Fun Sing-A-LongsÂ? CD Waltzes Into Stores August 31, 2004.

Ever wonder if there could exist lyrics to Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee? You’ve likely giddy-upped to Rossini’s William Tell Overture, but did you ever think to actually sing out the words “Giddy-up?” And ever in your wildest dreams could you picture a family car outing with everyone singing along to Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata? Well imagine no more. It’s now reality thanks to a unique new CD from the Classical Fun Music company, creators of the award winning “A to Z Symphony” DVD.

“Classical Fun Sing-A-Longs,” is a CD collection of 25 original children’s songs set to highlights of symphonic masterpieces by history’s greatest composers, including Strauss, Bach and Mozart. Delightful, easy-to-learn lyrics match the varied tempos of each piece. Children will have so much fun singing-along; they won’t realize they’re secretly learning some of the richest and most valuable melodies in music!

Recommended for ages 0-5, the 55-minute “Classical Fun Sing-A-Longs” CD will be available August 31, 2004 for a suggested retail price of $14.95.

Ride along with Wagner’s Valkyries as you sing out “We’re faster than sound/Our engines afire/We soar through the sky/And fly into space!” Partake in the grace of Tchaikovsky’s Swans on the Lake as you sing “Oh look at all the beautiful/ swans gliding so gracefully/Oh look at all the beautiful/swans dancing so happily.” And, for the parent set, proudly parlay Pomp and Circumstance with “Your Mommy and Daddy/Show you everyday/How you can be healthy/Smart happy and safe/Your Mommy and Daddy/Love you everyday.”

Parents and children alike can delight in the sing-a-longs as well as the additional 25 instrumentals of each offered on the CD. The title and composer of each piece is introduced before each instrumental and identified in the included lyrics book.
