Form 1: Folk music drama (around 30 minutes)
“The Concert in the Forest” tells that bunny Bunnie wanted to have a concert in the forest, so she was looking for partners in the forest. She separately met the deer (the Pipa Player), the pony (the Erhu player), the little bird (the Dizi player), and the whale (the Guzheng player). When she met the deer, the deer played the Pipa music “Happy” which was like deer was jumping cheerfully, and then we introduce Pipa. When she met the pony, the pony played the Erhu music "Horse Racing" which was like ponies were running, and then we introduce Erhu.

When she met the whale, the whale played the Guzheng music "High Mountain and Running River" which was like a small river was flowing, and then we introduce Guzheng.
