Concerts from February to December, for all the family.
The Symphonic Orchestra and Chorus Giuseppe Verdi of Milano (“laVerdi”) have announced an exciting programme of concerts for Saturday afternoons in the city’s auditorium, aimed at helping youngsters to “grow up with music”.
“Crescendo in Musica” is the title of a series of ten special concerts for kids, kicking off on 13 February at 16.00 with a carnival performance of Nicola Campogrande’s Three imaginary languages, which he describes as “a concert for orchestra and audience” – come in your carnival costume.
Among the other classical favourites for the younger listener (and often participant) will be Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, Tchiakovski’s Nutcracker Suite and Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.
But the programme is not limited to concerts: other events will include BBC documentaries with live orchestral accompaniment and an afternoon playing at how to compose a masterpiece.
The programme has full details of prices for single afternoons, five- or ten-concert season tickets, family tickets and other concessions, including young at heart over-60s.
