Patxi del Amo storyteller
Principal Players of Aurora Orchestra
Welcome the spring with this magical musical adventure of Chopin waltzes, dancing dragonflies and one very sleepy tortoise. Meet chattering streams, leap about with feathery chicks and help the springtime sun to shine in this playful and inventive storytelling concert for young children.
This multi-sensory performance interweaves chamber arrangements of Chopin’s piano music with a specially-commissioned story from Kate Wakeling (Writer-in-Residence). Audiences are invited to listen, sing, dance, and enter a magical world of music, discovery and play. For children aged 0–5 and their families.
