An exciting mix of classical repertoire presented by Dan Newell, the Tippett Quartet and friends.
Roll up, roll up! Billy’s Band, led by Dan Newell, trumpeter with the LSO and author of the acclaimed Billy’s Band books, takes children on a musical adventure with pre-concert activities, singing, dancing and even a spot of conducting for anyone who wants to have a go!
Billy is the finest, wisest and most whiskery conductor that ever lived. He takes his band to play in all kinds of weird and wonderful locations. Wherever the gig, the band are always faced with some mystery to be solved, or obstacle to overcome. By pulling together and using team-work, they always find a solution to the problem. Each adventure ends with a happy and rousing musical finale. Through story books, family concerts and school workshops, Billy’s Band will entertain and inspire children to pick up a musical instrument and have a go.
