Sat 22 October 2016, 14:30 – 16:00 BST
Join Monty the Maestro on his exciting adventure as he starts to form his marvellous magical orchestra!
Newbury’s very own composer and author, Gabrielle Amelia Ridgeon will be leading a fun and interactive book reading from her children's musical story book series. You’ll have the chance to learn how to conduct your own orchestra and get the opportunity to have Monty books signed by Gabrielle on the day.
Monty the Maestro and his Marvellous Magical Orchestra is a series that enables children to get to know the musical instruments of the symphony orchestra in a fun and fantastical way. Through the use of picture and audio books with charming stories and beautiful collage illustrations, learn what the musical instruments look like, understand how the instruments work and discover what they sound like individually and altogether.
Children will be entertained by the humorous plots, amused by the character voices and be captivated by the musical soundtrack. Altogether, creating a thoroughly sensory experience!
