As Poulenc was sitting at his piano one day, a little girl handed him a story book and asked him to play it-and he did-so we'll hear his Babar the Elephant this Sunday!

Sunday February 26th, 10am

This morning we'll hear part of Prokofiev's Music for Children, which he wrote to be played by children and which have fun names such as Parade of the Grasshoppers, The Rain and the Rainbow, Playing Tag, The Moon Strolls in the Meadow. We'll also meet some of our favourite musical creatures in Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals.

Sunday March 5th, 10am

Classical Kids celebrates International Women's Day with music by some of the great female composers and musicians. We'll hear music by talented percussionist Evelyn Glennie, the duetting pianist sisters Mariella and Katia Labeque, Irish composer Elaine Agnew. We'll also hear the story of a brave princess named Eliza whose brothers were turned into swans by a wicked witch. It's up to Eliza to save them by knitting shirts from stinging nettles, with music by the Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin.
