Tyrannosaurus Sue: A Cretaceous Concerto

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center

Travel back in time to before smart phones, before zippers, before umbrellas, before spoons…even before humans! Let’s travel back to the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Tyrannosaurus Sue is a musical tribute to the largest set of complete dinosaur bones ever found, with a trombone playing the lead role!
