Magical Musical Creatures (and where to find them)
Over 18s £10 / Under 18s £8
This is an interactive concert for children based on the theme of Magical Creatures.
Singer Rebecca Murphy and pianist Cahal Masterson will use family-friendly pieces of music, such as excerpts from the musical ‘Hansel and Gretel’ and Harry Potter film music, to engage children in telling a magical story with words and music.
Audience participation will be encouraged with the use of various props, in creating rhythms and thinking about how emotions can be expressed musically.
No musical experience required!
