With plenty of opportunities to join in, this is the perfect introduction to classical music for families with children aged 5 – 8.

Part of Sensational Schubert Festival

Our classical weekend is packed full of great music written by one of the all-time masters of melody, Franz Schubert. From irresistible tunes to haunting atmosphere, Schubert paints vivid musical pictures that span the full range of human emotion. The festival includes free activities for families before and after the concert – Come & Make sparkly fish to take to the concert in our free arts and crafts workshop, and Come & Try playing a wide range of musical instruments at our free drop-in sessions with Doncaster Music Hub.

Presented by Music in the Round, with concert performances by the world-class musicians from Ensemble 360.
