Saturday Spectacular Family Concert
Saturday 8 October 2011
Cadogan Hall, London
Go wizz, pop and bang with Southbank Sinfonia
Southbank Sinfonia present their next Saturday Spectacular concert, Fizzing Fireworks!
We would love your children to take part in the pre-concert party and workshop, and also invite them to perform onstage in Mozart’s Toy Symphony during the concert on Saturday 8th October at Cadogan Hall.
For the older children who are learning an instrument, we would like to send out music for their instruments in advance. If you would like your child to participate, please reply by Friday 2nd September with your child’s name, age, instrument, experience and address. This section is best suited to children studying at Grade 1 level or above.
For the younger children aged 5 and above, there will be a percussion workshop with music we will learn on the day. Please also reply with your child’s name and age so we can get an idea of numbers.
The morning’s activities will run as follows:
09.55am – All families to meet at the Cadogan Hall stage door to be escorted backstage. Don’t forget to wear your Family Friends VIP passes! Collect these from your piano teacher.
10.00am – Family Friends party and workshop. Younger children learning percussion and older instrumentalists will split up for some of this session.
10.30am – All children rehearse Mozart’s Toy Symphony onstage.
10.45am – Rehearsal ends, and craft activities begin in the foyer.
11.30am – Fizzing Fireworks concert!
Doors open at 10.15am for fun craft activities and to meet the players!
£8 adult, £6 children, £22 for family of four. An additional fee of £10 is due for membership of the Southbank Sinfonia Friends & Family Scheme which gives you the opportunity to perform on stage up to 3 times a year! (usually £60 per family). The £10 is payable to your teacher who will give you your VIP stage pass to wear on the day. You can book tickets direct with the venue.
Music students aged 5 and over are invited to play percussion on stage with the orchestra.
