Roll up for spectacular sounds of the circus: orchestral music for children under 10 and their families.

The annual KPO Kids Proms concert is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to come together and go on an exciting and amazing adventure through some much loved classical music masterpieces as well as some well-known favourites. The program is devised for children aged 3 to 10 years – with those younger and older welcome to enjoy. This is a fun-filled afternoon of entertaining magical music that will capture the hearts, minds and imaginations of children and adults alike, while inspiring a love of music.
