Want to know where to take the children this summer holiday? Short of fun and engaging ideas? Look no further! Monty has put together a special guide of his favourite musical must-sees especially for you.
This year the BBC Proms programme has featured some fabulous music for children, however, sadly most of the family concerts were scheduled in July before the schools finished. But if you are looking to introduce your children to classical music, the Proms is a fantastic way to begin – so here are the links to Monty’s favourite parts of the programme:
Each of the links includes a tracklist where you can see what pieces of music are performed and you can be directed to listen to them on Spotify or Apple Music. This is a really useful resource if your child wants to listen to a particular piece over and over again (and you’re not sure what it’s called or where to find it!)
Classical for Kids is offering children the opportunity to hear some string instruments perform at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 17th August. There are two performances (morning and afternoon) and buggies and babies are welcome. For more information check out Sensational Strings.
Music for Miniatures brings A Musical Zoo to the West on their summer tour. These run throughout August at various family-friendly halls. Children can even bring their favourite cuddly animals along to the concert too!
Tales of the Turntable at the Southbank Centre is a dance and music show based around Back to the Future and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Featuring hip-hop, funk, disco, house, rap and soul, this piece of theatre will take the whole family on a trip through musical history.
Monty will be posting more family-friendly events for the Autumn soon!
