Classical Kids

Classical Kids will have terrifying tunes and spooky stories to scare you silly this Halloween, and we'll hear music written for a Headless Horseman and some wicked witches!

Classical Kids Halloween story

Vinny the Violin loves Halloween but can't decide on a scary costume so decides to make a scary sound instead...

Sunday August 27th, 10am

Music fans got so excited watching Franz Liszt play piano, they would keep his rubbish as souvenirs and even faint at performances. This obsession was called 'Lisztomania', and on Sunday we'll hear exciting music by Liszt including his Hungarian Rhapsodies and La Campanella. Make sure you have a hat, a scarf, an umbrella and sunglasses too, because we're going to listen to lots of music about the weather! 

Sunday September 3rd, 10am

Classical Kids goes back to school this week with Music in the Classroom and the story of The Three Little Pigs. We'll also hear music that Franz Schubert and Gustav Holst wrote for school orchestras to play, and we'll hear a musical tribute by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos to the music of Bach.
