LSO Family Concert: Voyager


Travel through the depths of space on a musical journey inspired by the Voyager spacecraft and the Golden Records they carry, holding music and messages for extra-terrestrial life to discover. 

Kepler, an interstellar traveller, has beamed herself down to the Barbican Hall. Having found the Voyager space probe and its precious Golden Record, she looks through its contents and explores the great classical masterpieces and their impact on humankind.
Journey to the stars with your family and the London Symphony Orchestra in this space-themed family concert. Sing along with our stellar participation piece and help get Kepler home to her distant solar system.

Age guidance: Suitable for 7–12 year olds

Devised and scripted by Gareth Davies
Animations by Vic Craven
