Carnival of the animals is, alongside Peter and the Wolf, the ubiquitous family friendly introduction to classical music piece for children. Whilst we’re really looking forward to giving your our Mini Mozart take on the piece next week, if like us you live in London, you also have an embarrassment of opportunities to broaden your child’s cultural horizons. Here are a few of our favourite cultural hot spots. Let us know if you we’ve missed out your favourite gem.
Wigmore Hall – Lots of the Mini Mozart teachers also perform at Chamber Tots at Wigmore Hall.
London Philharmonic Orchestra – FUNharmonics is a whole range of family friendly events – the best of which have members of the orchestra hang out afterwards for your kids to have a go on their instruments. We can’t recommend these events highly enough for children who are starting to think about which instrument they might like to play.
The Southbank Centre has an amaing array of cultural activities – I challenge you NOT to find something you love there. Join their family mailing list to be kept up to date and book now for the amazing Imagine Festival which happens every year during February Half Term.
