Dinsoaurs!Who doesn't love dinosaurs? No-one…except maybe an orchestra whose concert is interrupted by one! But the Orchestra and Maestro are good sports, and they'll make room for professor Diven and his notes and slides as together they bring the dinosaurs roaring back to life.

REVIEWS: "This past week I was so fortunate to enjoy three performances of “Dawn of the Dinosaurs” written, composed, and narrated by the extraordinarily gifted Bob Diven. This is a stunning piece of work by this fresh young artist, cartoonist, actor, composer.....a perfect mix of really good music, well researched story line on a level that can be readily consumed by 4th graders or senior citizens......just enough wry, cerebral humor to maintain the interest of the most sophisticated audience.....just enough graphic presentation of quasi “Jurassic Park” pictures and sounds to fascinate youngsters....enough reference to our planet to be important...light enough to be delightfully entertaining. Don’t miss it!!" -- Dr. William Clark
"Bob Diven's "Dawn of the Dinosaurs" is a refreshing orchestral work geared toward youth and family concerts. The crossover of narration, music and visuals inspired and educated the audience. The kids "loved" it!" -- Lonnie Klein, Conductor, Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra
