Lullaby Concerts 2017 – Mission to Launch

We are delighted to announce that the ninth series of Orchestras Live’s award-winning Lullaby Concerts – Mission to Launch – is now on sale.
Rocket into space with presenter Claire Henry and City of London Sinfonia as they take music up into space in these concerts specially designed for children aged 2-7 and their parents and carers. As ever, there will be plenty of audience participation and the chance to have a go on some orchestral instruments after the concert – all with a relaxed atmosphere.
