Southern Pro Musica children’s concert at Chichester Festival Theatre (morning concert)

Southern Pro Musica returns with a perfect introduction to live music played by a full professional orchestra. This hour-long concert features musical classics such as a colourful Rossini Overture, Tchaikovsky ballet music and much more, including audience participation compered by the brilliant musical magician Neil Henry and conducted by Jonathan Willcocks.

At 10.45 and repeated at 13.30.

Children’s Concerts is a charity which aims to give thousands of primary-aged school children the opportunity to hear what a classical orchestra can do ‘live’. For many children this will be the first time they hear and see a great group of musicians playing compositions by some of the world’s greatest composers, both old and new, in a concert hall.

These annual concerts, founded in 1994 by Elizabeth Gotto, have been made possible thanks to the support of John Lewis, the Bedhampton Charitable Trust, the Foyle Foundation, the Colles Trust, the Boltini Trust, Hampshire District Council, Guildford Borough Council, Petersfield Town Council, the Humphrey Richardson Taylor Charitable Trust and many other generous donors in Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. Children’s Concerts also acknowledges with gratitude the recent grant of financial support from the Sussex Community Foundation towards our aim of ensuring access to our concerts for all children, regardless of their social and financial circumstances.
