CONCERTS introducing children to live orchestral music will return to Sudbury this month.
The Lullaby Concerts, which see the City of London Sinfonia Orchestra performing music to youngsters from seven years old, will be held at St Peter’s on Market Hill on October 26.
The event is returning after proving a hit with children, parents and carers last year, and aims to show that orchestral music is fun and accessible to children.
David Wood, chairman of Babergh District Council, said: “Following the success of last year’s Lullaby Concerts, we are very pleased to be working in partnership again with both Orchestras Live and the City of London Sinfonia.
“This is another great opportunity for young children to access orchestral music in a fun and lively way.”
The concerts will be presented by specialist musician Claire Bloor, and this year’s theme is magic with audiences encouraged to dress up, sing along and even try playing some of the instruments themselves.
Tickets for the concerts, which start at 11am and 2pm, are £4 for adults and £2 for children.
They can be bought from Sudbury’s Tourist Information Centre in Gaol Lane.
