Children's Concert at Discovery Centre - Saturday 14th July 2018
Join Winchester Chamber Orchestra and Friends for their ever-popular annual children’s concert. They will perform an orchestral adaptation of The Three Bears Phantasy, by Eric Coates, narrated by local writer and broadcaster, James McConnachie. Continuing on the theme of ‘bears’ the orchestra will also perform The Teddy Bears Picnic and segue seamlessly into Haydn’s Toy Symphony.
Don’t forget to bring a bear (or favourite toy) along to listen too!
Stay afterwards for our popular ‘instrument experience’ where the children can try out perfectly child-sized instruments courtesy of Hampshire Music Service.
Don’t forget to book your tickets in advance – we ALWAYS sell out!
