So, here at classical kids.ie we’ve been having a brilliant time bringing you our concerts. We’ve sung, danced, played and listened. We’ve had fantastic dressing up; from astronauts to princesses, we’ve had energetic dancing; from cowboy Hoe-Downs to Tchaikovsky waltzes to Hungarian folk dances, we’ve had beautiful and creative artwork, and we’ve really enjoyed all the interaction; from our young conductors and percussionists to our
budding opera stars and beyond. From babies to parents it’s so gratifying to see everyone engaged and joining in. For us, it’s fascinating to see how the children relate to the music, and what in particular resonates with them. It’s not always what we expect!
At our very first concert, as a child was breakdancing to Mozart right in front of me, I realised we were onto something! !
Our latest venture is slightly more sedate. We are bringing you concerts designed for parents and babies. That is, 0-18 months. More of a conventional concert, these recitals have play mats and our trademark baby friendly ethos, allowing the parent to relax and enjoy the music, perhaps even finding some valuable head space. The happy outcome of all this lovely serenity is the exposure the babies get to top notch classical music. Win win.!
So now you have two child friendly concerts to choose from; quieter, gentler baby concerts mid-week, and our all singing all dancing interactive weekend concerts. See you there!
