Wondrous worlds with Kazuki Yamada and Casey Bailey.

Our new Chief Conductor Kazuki can’t wait for his first Family Concert, and with Birmingham’s own brilliant poet Casey Bailey as his right-hand man, this is going to be one magical afternoon! With music perfectly picked for families, join us as we venture into the world of classic fairy tales set to music by Ravel, Grieg and Holly Harrison.

All family concerts are BSL interpreted. Recommended for children aged 6+

There will be an hour of FREE craft activities and a performance from our Children’s Chorus before this concert.
