Pianists Holly Cullen-Davies and Kamilla Arku bring an interactive kids piano concert to St Mary in the Castle, ideal for children age 7 – 11* and their families.

The Kids Concert Company provides a concert experience which is tailor-made for primary school age children learning instruments and at the beginning of their exciting musical journeys in life.  These concerts include classical, jazz, and traditional music from other parts of the world.  They are a length that children can manage and keep them involved and participating at all times whilst never detracting from their experience of really listening to and absorbing this wonderful music.

Children are given the opportunity to sing, dance, draw, improvise and explore mindful practice while listening to wonderful music played by world-class musicians.

This event is supported by Arts Council England and the Magdalen and Lasher Charity.

*All children must be accompanied by an adult.
