TUESDAY 20 August, 10.30am at Kindred Studios, Yarravaille (note there is no Friday performance this month) – $18 / KIDS FREE
Sunday 25 August, at the new time of 3pm, at The Victoria Hotel on Hyde Street, Yarraville $20 / KIDS FREE
The French Horn is one of the most elegant sounding of classical instruments, and possibly the most demanding to play. Simon Rattle calls it the “stunt man” instrument of the orchestra. The Concerteenies’ founder, Katie Pryce, will delight you and children of any age with a programme designed to highlight some of the most interesting music written for the French Horn, accompanied by Alistair Smith on piano.
This month, the Kindred Studios performance takes place on a Tuesday. And, for the Sunday at the pub show, we’ve moved the starting time back to 3 o’clock so that everybody can take care of lunch and naps without any rush. This is another experience for your kids – and a musical break for you – not to be missed.
Each recital lasts approximately 45 minutes, with babes-in-arms, breastfeeding mums and exhausted dads especially welcomed. Children of all ages can attend FREE, and are encouraged to be themselves during the performance.
