The Toddler has two big loves: music & books.
So you can imagine his joy when I announced
that he was going to attend a real concert,
with real musical instruments & real musicians.
A classical music concert just for children;
from 0 to 5 years!
A Musical Fairytale
The concerts, which last 30 minutes,
are specially conceived to keep the little ones entertained
while they enjoy high quality classical executions
from Aurora Orchestra's talented musicians.
By using simple props, like bubbles & balloons,
and a beautiful narrative,
the musicians interact with the children,
and manage to create a magical setting.
When, in a room full of babies & toddlers,
you don't hear a single cry,
you know this is good.
It was a real joy to see babies, toddlers & preschoolers
move along to the music, participate in the storytelling,
and clap their little hands with enthusiasm.
