London Sinfonia gives dazzling performance
Around 200 young children and their parents were dazzled by the sounds and sights of a live orchestra on Monday, while sat on the floor of a village community centre.
With the theme of Claire’s Musical Party, the City of London Sinfonia orchestra performed for the families in Great Cornard, with party poppers, whistles and horns accompanying world-renowned classics.
With families encouraged to participate there was much singing and dancing, and the children were even invited to have a go at playing the musical instruments at the end.
The orchestra performed a range of classical pieces including Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel and Greensleeves by Vaughan Williams.
The City of London Sinfonia is performing 10 concerts over five days at locations across Suffolk, including the two concerts at The Stevenson Centre in Great Cornard on Monday.
Stuart Bruce, Orchestras Live partnership manager, said: “We are ecstatic with the progress the Lullaby Concerts have made over the recent years.
“With the help of our partners in Suffolk, and world-class musicians, we have delivered educational, fun and inspirational events that will leave a musical imprint on the young minds of Suffolk.”
