CLASSICAL music, magic and audience involvement proved a winning formula during two concerts for children.

The Lullaby Concerts held at St Peter’s in Sudbury saw tots and toddlers given an introduction to orchestral music on Wednesday.

Presented by musician Claire Bloor, the City of London Sinfonia followed up the success of last year’s event with a range of classical pieces, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Dukas and Mozart’s Magic Flute overture, to fit in with the theme of magic.

David Wood, chairman of Babergh District Council, which helped organise the event along with Orchestras Live, said the concerts had again proved popular.

“This was a great opportunity for young children to access orchestral music in a fun and lively way,” he said.

Following the concerts, members of the audience put their musical talents to the test as they were given the chance to play some of the orchestral instruments for themselves.
