Here's something different - a concert where the audience is invited to join in. I love it!
Here's what the Philharmonica Baroque Orchestra says about their family concert: "Featuring recorder virtuoso Marion Verbruggen and conductor Ottavio Dantone, the program includes excerpts from two Baroque-era concertos for recorder (Vivaldi and Sammartini) in a special interactive presentation. Musicians from the orchestra will talk about the music they are performing and utilize visual accompaniment to create an engaging, lively family event.
As a grand finale, audience members at the Family Concert will be offered the unique opportunity to join the orchestra in performance on the stage. Anyone wishing to participate should bring their own instrument to play in the concert and sheet music for this piece will be available on the orchestra’s website at philharmonia.org prior to the concert."
