About CBSO Family Concert: The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra

Running time  This concert will last approximately an hour.

A fun-filled introduction to the orchestra for the whole family!

Ok, so what exactly IS an orchestra? Why is the piccolo so small? Why is the tuba so big? And what on earth does a xylophone sound like? In this entertaining concert for the whole family, the CBSO will show you how it all works – with a bit of help from Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide!

All Family Concerts are BSL Interpreted.

There will be an hour of FREE craft activities and a performance from our Children’s Chorus before this concert.
