Children's Concert

Today we joined some of our homeschooling friends at The Children's Concert performed by Southern Pro Musica at The Guildhall in Portsmouth.

This was Hannah's first taste of classical music and she really enjoyed it.

The program was chosen especially for children and was as follows:

Overture 'Ruslan and Lyudmila' - Glinka
Meet The Orchestra - Jonathon Willcocks (he is also the orchestra's conductor)
The Arrival Of The Queen Of Sheba -Handel
Tubby The Tuba - Kleinsinger
Waltz From Swan Lake - Tchaikovsky
Trumpet Concerto (Finale) - Hummel
Hornpipe - arr. Henry Wood
Tritsch-Tratsch Polka -J Strauss
Wigwam - Jonathon Willcocks
Wigwam had actions and words to go with it which all the children had fun joining in with and it was a lovely finish to the performance.

We will definitely be going back next year!
