Classical Kids

Classical Kids is a fun introduction to composers, musicians and instruments for younger listeners - and maybe some grownups too!

Sunday April 30th, 10am

We're mad about Mozart today, and we'll hear part of a horn concerto he wrote for the owner of a cheese shop, plus a symphony he wrote when he was just eight years old! We'll also hear the story of Paddington bear told with music, as he meets the Brown family for the first time. 

Sunday May 5th, 10am

We'll celebrate Summer this morning with music by Vivaldi and Glazunov written about the Seasons, and meet a snowman who loves the Summer! We'll also hear the story of Hansel and Gretel with music by Engelbert Humperdinck and we'll songs from a boys choir from Austria and a girls choir from Australia.
