Britten Sinfonia will present Mother Goose on Saturday, 21 October 2017 at 2pm at Toll Gavel United Church, Beverley, as part of the Classically Yours series.
This will be an interactive concert designed to introduce children to the delights of classical repertoire for chamber orchestra in a fun and collaborative environment.
Presented by Letty Stott and performed by six Britten Sinfonia musicians, audiences will have the opportunity to explore five different fairy tales accompanied by the charmingly delicate and imaginative suite of wind quintet pieces written by French composer Maurice Ravel.
Community arts officer June Mitchell said : “Help us create musical breadcrumbs for Tom Thumb, sing songs about caterpillars in The Fairy Garden, dance with The Prince of Pagodas and act as sleeping lions in Sleeping Beauty.”
The recommended age group is five to nine years, plus accompanying adults.
Tickets cost: Adults £6, Children £5, and are available from Beverley Library, or call 01482 395320, or visit events.eastriding.gov.uk
