Programme for the family concert:
"The Mad Professor and the Lost Oboe"
Our soloist Dan has lost his oboe on the way from the UK to Mexico and needs your help to make one before the big concert finale, or he won’t be able to play! Calling on Mad Professor Claire to rustle him one up in her musical laboratory, join Dan and his friends from the City of London Sinfonia for this exciting afternoon of classical music, singing and audience participation, with music by British composers including Vaughan Williams, Holst and Warlock. This concert is an easy introduction to the Orchestra and classical music with plenty of audience participation and interaction and is aimed at children aged 3 to 6 years old and their families.
