The Classic Party involves two practitioners – a lead instrumentalist and an accompanist – who tell an interactive story about a little boy/girl, or prince/princess who’s parents don’t want him to be spoiled. Rather than simply being given a party, he has to earn one by completing 3 tasks. (Bubble popping, musical statues, pass the parcel, etc). The tasks are accompanied by fun live classical music and the story is interspersed with well known songs for the children (and adults if they’re so inclined) to sing along with. When the birthday boy (or girl) goes into town to buy a new party outfit, he goes by bus and they sing ‘Wheels On The Bus’. He looks fabulous from head to toe – so we sing Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes. When he passes a task we sing ‘If You’re Happy & You Know It’ etc.
And the big reveal? : Who do you think the birthday boy/girl is!?
The children interact with orchestral instruments, percussion, and play party games with a parachute & bubbles. We usually end with ‘Happy Birthday’ (cue the family videographer who we’ll have primed to capture the child’s face when she sees her birthday cake for the first time) and after she’s made a wish the birthday tea is often served while someone cuts up the cake.
If it’s a Christening, Baby Naming or some other special occasion, we’ll end with a rousing chorus of The Oakey Cokey instead!
This party is much more rambunctious than the Babies’ Party, and two practitioners can look after up to 20 excited children. Please (for your sake and ours!) request a third practitioner if you have more than 20 children attending. The Classic Party lasts 1 hour.
Our Mini Mozart Classic Party is £300. If you require more practitioners or have more than 20 children, please get in contact to discuss your requirements. Why not get a feel of what Mini Mozart is all about at one of our classes?
