Music, Noise and Silence

THE STORY

Three meddlesome spirits—Music, Noise and Silence—invade symphony hall. The concert seems doomed as Silence and Noise attempt to seize control of the orchestra. Only with the help of the audience and Music will the conductor be able to break the fierce grip of Noise and bring harmony back to the orchestra.
