- Classical Symphony
Have you ever wondered what happens when an orchestra tries to play without a conductor? In this Southbank Sinfonia Family Concert, we’ll be doing exactly that as the musicians themselves take control. But how do they keep the music together? Join us and find out as every flick of the head, raising of an eyebrow or split-second of eye contact changes the direction the music takes.
To make the challenge even greater, we’ll be performing Prokofiev’s sparkling, cheeky and devilishly difficult Classical Symphony. Bouncing along with energy, it’s full of musical mischief just waiting to be explored. Alongside 33 electrifying young players, you can also expect dramatic lighting effects and specially created videos that help to take you right inside the orchestra and the music being played.
After the concert you can meet the musicians and try out some of their instruments in Cadogan Hall’s foyer.
Ideal for children aged 5 – 11.
