Even kids can enjoy classical tunes as the Singapore Symphony Orchestra presents two concerts aimed at younger audiences this November and December. From 10th – 11th November, bring your young ones to Music Tells A Story at the Victoria Concert Hall and be soothed by conductor-arranger Gerard Salonga, who also happens to be the younger brother of award-winning singer Lea Salonga. Salonga will lead the SSO in this jolly programme of creative orchestral tales and familiar favourites, ranging from Ravel’s Mother Goose: Five Pieces for Children to Smetana’s The Moldau from My Fatherland. Enjoyable and educational, kids will be taught to listen for themes that represent characters and events in a musical story or picture, helping them better appreciate the subtleties of classical music.
And from 8th to 9th December, the perennial favourite SSO Babies’ Proms returns to the Victoria Concert Hall. Always a sell-out show, the 16th edition of the Proms will be hosted once again by veteran Peter Moore, promising an hour of great fun and entertainment for both parents and children alike. Start your child young on a diet of classical music, easing them in with these specially programmed concerts, and before you know it, they’ll be listeners for life.
Music Tells A Story plays from 10th – 11th November 2018 at the Victoria Concert Hall, tickets available from SISTIC.
