 Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin, Marvin Hamlisch
This musical work was born out of Hamlisch's awareness of the need to entice and hold young people as symphony orchestra audience members.

The center section (without narration) exploits the myriad colors and textures of the orchestra in a musical language that is at times jazzy, Bachian, Broadway and rock; it is vital, expressive, colorful, and energetic.
