Northern Workshop explores a little toy making workshop in the far northern parts of the globe. The initial footsteps through the snow, a few timid knocks, and a ring of the bell ... then the door opens to a joyful collection of assembly line sounds and song. Obviously toys for the whole world aren't made in a day, so this ensemble piece is a great addition to concerts all year long!
