Southbank Sinfonia Family Concerts
What better way to kickstart your family’s weekend than with our Family Concerts in London, jam-packed with fuel for the imagination?
Featuring a full orchestra, they mix live musical performance with specially created videos, sounds and theatrical lighting that immerse children and adults alike in an inspiring orchestral world.
Join us on an adventure led by the players themselves and find out just what’s so exciting about classical music. After each concert, you’ll also have the chance to meet our friendly musicians and try out some of their instruments in the Cadogan Hall foyer.
These concerts are ideal for children aged 5 – 11 years, but parents and grandparents have just as much fun too!

Saturday 15 October 2016 | 11.00am
CADOGAN HALL, LONDON
Like each musician, every instrument in the orchestra has its own personality and stories to tell. Some are extrovert and excitable, rushing to share tales of action and adventure. Others are more laid back, preferring to keep you on the edge of your seat as they slowly let the tension build and build.
Here the spotlight is shone on a selection of them as we explore concertos, delving into some juicy musical conversations between the soloist and the supporting orchestra!
With 33 electrifying young players as your guides, you can also expect dramatic lighting effects and big screen projections that help to take you right inside the orchestra and the music being played. After the concert you can meet the musicians and try out some of their instruments in Cadogan Hall’s foyer.
Includes movements from:
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor
Hummel Trumpet Concerto
Arnold Clarinet Concerto No.1
Haydn Cello Concerto No.1 in C major
