In a recent collaboration, the BSO partnered with WBUR’s "Circle Round" to record episodes of the popular children’s podcast that shares folk tales from around the world. BSO musicians are featured performing original music composed by Eric Shimelonis, accompanying scripts written by Rebecca Sheir and narrated by actors. Check out the episodes below!
