Maestro, the potbellied pig, is a delightful story of a young girl who is inspired by a night at the symphony to become a professional musician. She also bonds with her pet potbellied pig, whom she names Maestro. The story is enriched with gorgeous harp music and a few violin excerpts. Young people will find the story delightful. Perhaps they too will be captured by the beautiful harp playing and desire to become a musician as well.
