Operatic arias and nursery rhymes sound wonderful, are fun and give small children the chance of hearing something new. A simple storyline takes them off on a journey to the world of music and members of our ensemble of singers and orchestral musicians. The children don't just sit there in amazement listening - they can all join in by singing and clapping along.
