Calling all Parents… Grandparents… Aunts… Uncles… Friends… Do you know a young person who might enjoy seeing and hearing live music being performed…?
The Hit Squad is an exciting team of brass and percussion players from Milton Keynes City Orchestra – including trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba; xylophones, marimbas, drums, cymbals and lots more percussion instruments which are played by being “beaten” and “hit”.
The Hit Squad will be performing at Stantonbury Campus Theatre, at 3pm on Saturday 17th December, with a programme including fun arrangements of music that you and the family will know from film and television – The Entry of the Gladiators, Star Wars and the Pink Panther theme.
Tickets for this concert are just £4.50 in advance, or £5.50 on the day, and can be booked direct from Milton Keynes City Orchestra on 01908 558311 or from Stantonbury Campus Theatre Box Office on 01908 324422.
All of the Music 4 Kids concerts are ideal for young people aged about 6 – 12yrs and their family and friends – they are the perfect way to introduce young people (and the not so young!) to live orchestral music. The next concert in the New Year will be A Birthday Present for Mozart on Saturday 11th February!
