LSO Family Concert: What Do You Do with an Idea?

Suitable for 7—12 year olds

LSO Family Concert May 2019

Experience the spectacle of a live symphony orchestra with your family as we tell the story of one brilliant idea and the child who helps to bring it into the world.

As the child’s confidence grows, so does the idea itself. And then, one day, something amazing happens.

This magical concert, combining an orchestra with theatrical elements, explores the importance of creativity and imagination and how young people have the power to change the world.

Fun and informative, the LSO’s family concerts are specially designed to entertain the whole family. Presented in a unique and engaging way, let us guide you through a themed programme, with some music you'll know and some you won't. And it’s not just sitting in silence either – we always offer the chance to get involved by playing and singing along, and you can get into the spirit of the concert with free activities and immersive workshops in the Barbican foyers beforehand.
