Three concerts for the whole family (eight years and older)
The Family Series consists of three concerts allowing parents and grandparents to introduce their children and grandchildren to the world of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. You and the children are seated onstage behind the orchestra, where you have a good view of the musicians and conductor.
A fun introduction is given for the children’s benefit prior to the concert. They are welcomed in one of the Concertgebouw foyers an hour before the concert begins, and are given background information on the music performed on that particular concert. Musicians will also be on hand to talk a bit about their instruments, and the children will be given the opportunity to ask questions.
The Family Series features music by world-renowned orchestral magicians. Stravinsky’s enchanting ballet music The Firebird is an experience for young and old alike. And there’s more ballet music in the form of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, which many have probably heard before – on television programmes, for example.
And then there’s the orchestral magician Kristian Bezuidenhout, who will be playing the piano and simultaneously leading the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in beautiful music by Mozart and C.P.E. Bach!
The series F is sold out.
