Stamford Orchestra to perform family concert for children of all ages

10 Oct 2018

On Monday 22nd October at Market House, Stamford Orchestra will perform Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals for children of all ages. There will be two performances at 1pm and 3pm and each concert will last an hour.

Since Stamford Orchestra's first concert in July 2015 Andrew Pettitt (principal oboe) and Tom Davey (conductor) have put on 13 concerts with the orchestra raising £17,000 for Oxfam, Barnardos, MacMillan, Music for Kenya, Reverse Rett, Syria Relief, UNICEF, Musicians' Benevolent Fund, Francis House Childrens' Hospice, Amnesty International and the Childrens' Adventure Farm Trust.

The orchestra is made up of professional musicians from the Hallé Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic, Manchester Camerata, freelance professionals and students from the RNCM.

The concert will be conducted and presented by Thomas Davey and the audience will be introduced to the instruments of the orchestra before Carnival of the Animals is performed.

The young audience will be invited to sit around the orchestra so they have a chance to hear, see and learn about the instruments.

Tickets can be purchased from www.ticketsource.co.uk/stamfordorchestra or by phoning 0333 6663366. Tickets are priced £6/£8/£9/£12 and family tickets are available.
