The Chipmunks finish a rehearsal and Dave instructs them to get ready for their concert. Not wanting to perform on such a large stage, the boys add a castle, mountain, and tree props to the stage, though Dave doesn't believe it's a good idea. The brothers figure out who will provide their instrumental accompaniment, using musical characters they know. Everyone has trouble playing together until Alvin gives out sheet music and decides to conduct the orchestra. After which, their performance runs smooth.
