Classical Music Concerts for children in London

Posted under Other news

I was recently sent some tickets to take my children along to hear LMA Orchestra perform classical family concerts at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, London, and I thought I’d tell you more about this great opportunity to introduce your children to classical music.

This concert series is quite unusual as it is especially for kids and their parents. They play games, tell stories, sing, clap and dance and the children even get a chance to conduct the orchestra and sit in amongst the players. Very few orchestras do this and they are trying to get as many children there as possible. The orchestra makes no profit from these events they are purely to pass on knowledge and exciting learning! Here are some of the events they’ve got coming up:
