Fisticuffs and Fairies - FUNharmonics Family Concert at the Royal Festival Hall
Pray silence for the Great Bard...though this concert will be anything but quiet - with battles, weddings, jovial japes and dazzling dances aplenty. There's warmongering from Walton, magic from Mendelssohn, pomp from Prokofiev, and bravado from Bernstein as we take you on an orchestral adventure through scenes from the great stage masterpieces of William Shakespeare. Travel 'on location' with us to Agincourt, Athens, Verona, and New York with music written for films, musicals, ballets and the plays themselves.
Foyer events throughout the morning
You can try your hand at playing an orchestral instrument in one of our Have-a-Go sessions, get your face painted or learn circus skills - all in the foyers before and after the performance.
FUNharmonics concerts are generously supported by The Jeniffer & Jonathan Harris Charitable Trust.
