Hands-on fun

Having a go at conducting

Sunday March 1st, G Live, Guildford
Join Southern Pro Musica for a feast of family-friendly classical music!

1pm – FREE hands-on instrumental workshops with professional musicians
3pm-4pm – Full Southern Pro Musica orchestral concert



Southern Pro Musica’s Family Classics has become a Guildford institution over past seasons, offering the chance for children of all ages to try out a full range of orchestral instruments and percussion in free workshops led by top-flight professional Southern Pro Musica players.

Following the hands-on fun of the workshops, there’ll be a live concert performed by the full professional orchestra under the baton of SPM’s esteemed Artistic Director, Jonathan Willcocks. Everyone can enjoy the thrill of hearing brilliant accessible music, such as pieces by Bach, Rossini and Strauss, some colourful film music and much more. There’ll be a musical story, The Lonely Drummer, narrated by the inimitable Peter White, and of course as usual there’ll be the opportunity for the audience to join in with the fun.

The orchestra will be joined by singers from Guildford High Junior School Lower Choir and the SPM String Scheme players ‘Strictly Strings’.

Admission for children aged 18 and under is completely FREE – as it is for all SPM-promoted concerts within the ‘Music for Guildford’ season.
