“THE PHILHARMONIC GETS DRESSED”
by Karla Kuskin
Illustrated by: Marc Simont Publisher: HarperCollins ISBN-13: 978-0064431248

It is Friday evening.  The sky is getting darker and darker, and lights are starting to come on in the houses and the apartment buildings. Here and there, uptown and downtown and across the bridges of the big city, 105 people are getting ready to go to work.  Some of them take showers while others prefer to bathe and will even take bubble bathes.  Some shave or trim their mustaches nice and neat.  Others put on dusting powder and a little jewelry.  Then they all get into special black and white clothes and travel to midtown with their musical instruments.  There, at 8:30, they will meet up and work together playing beautiful music in an orchestra.
