The Willoughby Symphony's children's concert, Crowns and Tiaras, comes to The Concourse, Chatswood on Saturday 27 July at 2pm. Tickets are now on sale.
A musical fairytale adventure, Crowns and Tiaras introduces children to the exciting world of classical music in a fun and engaging way.
The 50-minute concert is presented by Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, Dr Nicholas Milton AM, who will lead an interactive, explanatory performance with excerpts from Edward Elgar's regal Enigma Variations, captivating children of all ages.
This is a special opportunity for children to witness symphonies of music by Australia's leading community orchestra, under the direction of their internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated Artistic Director.
Following the concert, children will be further entertained with free crown decorating from 3pm – 4pm in The Concourse foyer, as well as an opportunity to meet the musicians and play their orchestral instruments. Children are encouraged to dress up in their regal attire with a crown or tiara – there will be prizes for best dressed!
"Our annual family concert is a superb opportunity for children to be exposed in a completely relaxed and fun way to the wonders of a symphonic performance and to meet the instruments and musicians of their local orchestra," Dr Nicholas Milton AM said.
"These concerts are always highlights of the Willoughby Symphony's year and Crowns and Tiaras, featuring the spectacular Pomp and Circumstance March – as performed by the WSO's full symphonic strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion – is a perfect stepping stone for children to develop a lifelong passion and love for music," he said.
