FAMILY CONCERT: DO YOU SPEAK MUSIC?
CADOGAN HALL, SLOANE SQUARE
Mendelssohn Symphony No.3 ‘Scottish’
Karin Hendrickson conductor
How many languages do you know? It’s more than you think… Music is a language that everyone understands, heard and loved around the world. But every country has a slightly different musical accent, and for every person – yes, even you! – the music has a slightly different meaning.
In this Family Concert, 33 musicians from 12 countries will be your guides through a symphony written in Italy by a German all about Scotland. Join Southbank Sinfonia for a thrilling global adventure, hearing straight from the performers as we uncover the ingredients of classical music like never before.
Big-screen projections and lighting immerse you within the music during the concert, and then afterwards you can meet the musicians and try out their instruments.
Ideal for children aged 5 – 11
Tickets £6.50 – £10 (plus booking fee)
