Debussy loved children, and he wrote some of his loveliest and most fantastical music specially to entertain them. In this concert for all the family, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Catherine Arlidge and the whole CBSO show how he used music to tell wonderful stories. You’ll hear incredible sounds, and see some beautiful pictures too. In fact, it’ll be a treat whatever your age – as long as you’re ready to use your imagination!

FREE craft activities in the foyer from 12.30pm. Concert is 1 hour long with no interval.

This concert is part of the CBSO's Debussy Festival. Why not consider saving money with a multi-concert festival pass? Learn more…
