LSO Discovery Family Concert: Trains, Planes and Automobiles
Suitable for 7- to 12-year-olds
Paul Rissmann presenter
London Symphony Orchestra
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Whizz around the globe with the LSO and presenter Paul Rissmann to discover music that’s all about get-up-and-go.
From the bustling ‘Sunday Morning’ of Benjamin Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, to John Adams’ futuristic Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Mussorgsky’s Baba Yaga, the witch who gets around in a hut on chicken legs (yes, really) come and find out if you have what it takes to keep up with the Orchestra.
Plus the LSO Youth Choir will be on hand to help us dance through the London Underground in Paul Rissmann’s quirky tube-themed participation song.
Pre-concert workshops: 10.30am –1pm
Get those creative juices flowing ready for the afternoon’s performance in exciting workshops based on the concert theme. You will get the chance to compose music alongside members of the LSO, as well as making your own props to take into the concert.
