We'll visit a magical toyshop on Sunday with music by Respighi and Rossini, and we'll hear music written for such magical films such as Spirited Away and Ponyo on the Cliff.

Sunday February 19th, 10am

Today we'll hear about Mozart and his sister Nannerl, who travelled all over Europe with their father, Leopold, performing for ladies and gentlemen, kings and queens. We'll even travel back in time to hear him conduct his first symphony, on Mozart's Magnificent Voyage! We'll also hear music written by Respighi to describe different birds, including The Hen and The Cuckoo. 

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.
