Roll up for spectacular sounds of the circus: orchestral music for children under 10 and their families.
The Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra has been delighting local audiences since 1971. Their 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.
Led by conductor George Ellis and narrator Emily McKnight, this hour-long concert is presented in an entertaining and engaging way allowing the audience to interact with the musicians and the conductor and get up close to the instruments.
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 Mancini, Saint-Saëns, Rossini, Berlioz, Fucik, Copland and Britten. It will also include some well-known children’s favourites and a specially commissioned new work by Holly Harrison.
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 and chatting to you and your children afterwards.
