Schools take the plunge at King Georges Hall

Published Monday 31 October 2016 at 14:50

Three local primary schools have been invited to hear one of the UK’s top symphonic ensembles.

Over 400 children from Longshaw Nursery and Primary, Lammack Primary, Cedars Primary and St Stephens Primary Schools have been invited to King George’s Hall to hear The Hallé’s latest cantata for young children and families.

Following on from the success of Giraffes Can’t Dance and Elmer the Elephant, The Hallé, with support from Blackburn with Darwen Music Service are offering two performances of this concert to schools within the Borough.

The performance of Rainbow Fish is interactive throughout, written especially as an introduction to the instruments of the orchestra.

The pupils have made puppets of ‘Clippy the Crab’ to bring with them on the day and the auditorium is set to be lit like an aquarium.  Then for 40 spellbinding minutes, nine Hallé musicians who, joined by a dancer and puppets, will bring the story of Marcus Pfister’s favourite tale of acceptance and friendship to life, through music, singing, dancing and acting.

There is also a public performance that is taking place on Wednesday, November 2 at 4pm. Tickets are £7 for adults and £5 for children and are available from King George’s Hall, on 0844 847 1664 or from the website:
