Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals
Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf
Spoerer 9/8 Break (world premiere)


LONDON MOZART PLAYERS
Polly Ives narrator
with pupils from Cypress & Rockmount Schools & the Harris Academy (tbc), Well Versed Ink, Tim Spoerer and the Djembe Kings




Animals galore in a fun afternoon concert that’s perfect for all the family!


Lions, elephants and kangaroos as well as an elegant swan, a cheeky duck and a big bad wolf will take over St John the Evangelist on Sunday 17th March. But it’s not a menagerie on the run! It’s the London Mozart Players breathing life into the animals of Saint-Saëns brilliantly comic Carnival of the Animals and Prokofiev’s evergreen and dramatic Peter and the Wolf.


This fully immersive and interactive concert will include original poetry from local children in collaboration with literacy workshop experts Well Versed Ink, along with a pre-concert ‘lumière’ display of animal illustrations that will bring Saint-Saëns roaring lions and braying donkeys to life. There’s also a sparkling retelling of Prokofiev’s classic Peter and the Wolf by Polly Ives, with youngsters invited to a creative mask-making workshop so they can take part in the story, and there may be some surprise guests that make the afternoon even more thrilling!


Also on our exciting indoor safari will be young instrumentalists from Rockmount and Cypress Primary Schools who’ll join in the fun and perform alongside the LMP. And, in an epic finale, Tim Spoerer and his ensemble will present a high-energy djembe-drumming world premiere that will bring the sound of Africa to south London!


Perfect for animal lovers of all ages, this is a grrrrrrreat way to introduce younger family members to live classical music.
