The Metropolitan Orchestra announces the return of its much-loved Kids Cushion Concert Series for 2021 at Balmain Town Hall.
One of the most popular children’s classics of all time, Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf will enchant, entertain and educate audiences both young and old. Take your children on this amazing musical journey with Peter and his Grandfather, the Bird, Cat, Duck, the Hunters, and of course the big, bad, Wolf. During this interactive Babies Proms performance, children are introduced to each of the musical instruments that represent the different characters of this timeless story.
Presented by Tyran Parke and conducted by Sarah-Grace Williams, this is a chance to give your children a fun and engaging first-class musical experience with a unique opportunity to get up close to the instruments of a symphony orchestra. Watch your little one fall in love with beautiful music and start a lifetime love of this timeless story. The previous three years have sold out with only limited seats available for these four concert performances.
This interactive series invites young audiences and their families to bring your rugs and cushions to these shorter concerts (without interval) and sit on the floor (or chairs if you prefer) where you can comfortably see, hear and engage with the performers. All concerts end with a chance for your child to interact with their favourite musical instruments and discover a little more about what they’ve just experienced. This series is targeted at ages 6 months to 8 years.
