Musical Play Sessions

Large orchestral instruments can look quite intimidating to children. Large oboes, trumpets and cellos are monsters of the music world, not only in size, but also in the skill required to play them. The London Philharmonic Orchestra want to encourage unlock the musical talent in youngsters, so in a three part series, are offering orchestra workshops to get the whole family taking part in learning the basics of how to play these wonderful instruments. As well as 'have-a-go' sessions, FunHarmonics will also have performances and an introduction to famous composers. Tickets are between 10-18.
