Firebird for Schools

Mozart Overture to The Marriage of Figaro K.492

Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf, Op.67

Brahms Hungarian Dance No.5

Free tickets will be available for a new tailor-made concert for schoolchildren from London Firebird Orchestra introducing young people to the magical world of the orchestra.

Firebird’s Michael Thrift will conduct the concert. which will feature Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf with narrator Nickolas Grace (pictured), along with a selection of well-known classical works.

As part of the charity’s outreach work this event is a partnership between the orchestra, London Music Masters and state schools from a range of London boroughs. 

Taking place in the intimate but spacious surroundings of St George’s Hanover Square – also known as ‘Handel’s Church’ – the children will be able to sit up close to the orchestra to engage with the performance.

Firebird believes this is a particularly important enterprise which it hopes will become an annual event. With provision for music in certain parts of London currently restricted, this exciting concert will inspire the next generation of music-makers and music-lovers.

Tickets are available for participating schools. For more information please contact the orchestra.
