Alice in Orchestralia is a 1925 children's novel by American composer and radio producer Ernest La Prade (1889–1969). A girl named Alice visits a symphony concert and, through the portal of a tuba's bell, enters Orchestralia, where a bass viol escorts her and introduces her to a variety of animated musical instruments. In 1934 it was re-issued in a second edition with the title Alice in Orchestra Land. In 1929 La Prade wrote a sequel entitled Marching Notes; in 1952 a British edition of this was published under the title Alice in Music Land.
