    Family Concert: The Four Seasons

    10:00 amMain Hall, The Minster School, Nottingham Road

    The Family Concert, suitable for all children of primary school age, is based on Vivaldi’s popular Four Seasons violin concertos. Members of the Southwell Festival Sinfonia will take you on a journey through some of the most famous and best-loved music of all time. Come early to meet the musicians before the concert starts and take part in a banner-making workshop to create the backdrop for the orchestra. The concert is devised and presented by Ruth Rosales, who runs family concerts with leading orchestras and venues across the UK.
