The annual KPO Kids' Proms concerts feature fun-filled and entertaining orchestral music and activities that will capture the hearts, minds and imaginations of children and adults alike, while inspiring a love of music. The program is devised for children aged 3 to 8 years – with those younger and older welcome to enjoy. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to experience together an exciting adventure through some much loved classical music masterpieces as well as some well-known favourites.
Led by conductor Peter Ellis and narrator Emily McKnight, this hour-long concert is presented in an entertaining and engaging way allowing children to interact with the musicians and the conductor.
The audience will get to sample some of the most beloved and popular orchestral works by famous composers in an informal setting, perfect for those who might be new to classical music or might want to introduce someone else to it. These works will highlight the features and possibilities of each instrument and are sure to inspire those thinking of learning to play, both young and old.
The performance will include music by Kabalevsky, Rachmaninov, Debussy, Brahms, Beethoven and Holst as well as selections from film scores by Howard Blake and Christophe Beck.
The KPO Kids' Proms are a great introduction to the world of classical music, conducting and musical instruments. An enjoyable event for both the orchestra and the audience, we look forward to welcoming you to this event.
