Family Concert: Tall Tales, Magical Myths and the Stuff of Legends
The Music of Antonín Dvořák
Saturday 2 March | 12.30h | Great Hall, Blackheath Halls
A mischievous water goblin, a loving family, and an underwater wedding with fish for bridesmaids! These tall tales provided the inspiration for Dvořák’s symphonic poems, which create a murky underwater realm full of secrets and mischief. Bring the whole family to experience a full orchestra performing music with the power to draw you into a world where things are not quite what they seem…
Tickets: £6 (adults), £4 (children)
Schools' Concert 18/19 - Key Stage 1 Concert
KS1 Schools’ Concert : Blast of Brass!
Friday 03 May | 11.00h & 13.00h | Great Hall, Blackheath Halls
Loud! Powerful! Shiny! Brass instruments are the superheroes of the instrument family. They swoop in and save the day with their super-sonic strength of sound. Like most superheroes however, there is more to this confident swagger than meets the eye. Join us to hear another side of these bold, fearless instruments as presenter Lucy Drever and the Trinity Laban Brass Ensemble guides you through a jam-packed concert featuring the music of Errolyn Wallen, Bach and Debussy, AND the chance for you to join in too with a specially-written song by composer and trumpeter Laura Jurd.
TICKETS: £90 per class (max. 33)
Up to 5 accompanying teachers per school go free.

Trinity Laban School's Concerts
"The students absolutely loved the concert! It was a really unique experience for them, and as staff we found the whole event was well planned, well supervised and in a great location. Thank you for having us - we indeed hope to be back soon!"
- Boxgrove Primary School
"The concert was very well organised with appropriate content. It has helped our students retain information about the pieces and supported their revision."
- George Abbot School
"The selection of pieces was excellent, with a lovely range of music. The logistics and 'choreography' worked really smoothly and made it much more than a concert. Finally, the performance of the music was outstanding."
- St Alfege Church
