Thanks to Fort Wayne Philharmonic violinist, Kristine Papillon, there's a new children's audio book on the horizon, called "Crumpet the Trumpet."

Its purpose is to introduce young folks to the world of classical music, by way of a sweet and funny bedtime story.

The book features illustrations by the author, a soundtrack showcasing 32 musicians, and narration by Fort Wayne Philharmonic Maestro Andrew Constantine.

It will make its premiere this Sunday afternoon, when the Orchestra performs the soundtrack live at their family concert.

WBOI's Julia Meek met with Papillon earlier this week to discuss her adventures in making this melodious project come together.
