From Mozart to Muddy Puddles! Peppa Pig will visit theatres and concert halls across the UK!
Peppa Pig My First Concert is a brilliant way to introduce your children to a live orchestra, when you join Peppa on a magical musical journey up and down the UK from February to May 2020. This unmissable production gives children a chance to experience their first concert in a way that is truly memorable for them. It’s been specially designed for the youngest audience members to discover the joys of an orchestra for the first time.
Children and their families can sing and dance along to their favourite Peppa songs, watch as Daddy Pig learns how to conduct an orchestra, explore the sounds that the many different instruments make. You’ll also get the chance to enjoy familiar Peppa Pig tunes along with discovering some exciting orchestral pieces. These have all been hand selected to be perfect for little ones, to introduce them to a whole new world of music and really capture their imagination.
There’s no better way to give children their first concert experience than with a much-loved children’s character – and characters don’t get much more well-loved than Peppa herself.
Flautist and children’s concert specialist, Jane Mitchell, has been heavily involved in the creation of this union between children’s entertainment and live orchestra. As Creative Director and principal flautist of critically acclaimed British chamber orchestra Aurora, Jane is incredibly well respected in the world of classical music; but in this new production, she has worked alongside arranger Iain Farrington to interweave beloved Peppa Pig songs into classics by Beethoven and others, including Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Grieg.
Jane says “Orchestras are sometimes seen as inaccessible for young audiences. Breaking that down is incredibly rewarding – and playing Muddy Puddles alongside Mozart is amazing fun. The Peppa Pig audience is mostly under five, so that ‘Wow’ experience is really important. If you can reach them through a character they know and love, it’s a golden opportunity”
Peppa Pig My First Concert will be touring the UK and stopping off in Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Brighton, Manchester, London, Bristol and Cardiff – phew! Tickets are available to purchase online.
