Since we aspire to nurture our concert audience since their very early age, we organise series of children’s concerts twice a year.
Children’s programmes involve elements of actual symphonic concerts, featuring a full-sized orchestra on the stage, a conductor and a standard symphonic repertoire, as well as an actor taking the role of the narrator with a view to introducing the youngsters into the world of classical music in a way that is tailored to their interests. The costumes, illustrations, instrument presentations and the games we play are some of the ways in which we are trying to bring children closer to symphonic music.
The month of October is reserved for preschool children, whereas the programmes organised in March target the pupils of primary school grades I–IV. These two periods are the merriest parts of our concert seasons, when we are delighted to welcome more than 2000 children in the Belgrade Philharmonic Hall over ten days.
In several recent seasons, our very successful children’s performances included Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, J. Williams’ soundtrack from Harry Potter, Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, Camille Saint-Saëns’ The Carnival of the Animals, Paul Dukas’ The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, F. Poulenc’s The Story of Babar, P. I. Tchaikovsky’s symphonic fairy tale The Nutcracker…
The concerts are organised on weekday mornings, in cooperation with preschool institutions and schools. For all information and requests, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
