In Harmony Liverpool, Liverpool Philharmonic Children's Choirs, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under Matthew Coorey, with Michael Rosen (storyteller) and Tony Ross (illustrator).
We’re going on a bear hunt! There’s fun for all the family as Michael Rosen takes his much-loved book as the starting point for a whole new set of adventures. Along the way, illustrator Tony Ross conjures up pictures live on big screens and the RLPO and children from In Harmony plunder the music of composers including Mussorgsky, Grieg and Stravinsky to find the most exciting, most dreamy and most scary tunes, all bound together with original music by Ian Stephens. And there will be lots of opportunities for the audience to join in.
(Note: Royal College of Music at 1pm, a Proms Plus event for Family Orchestra and Chorus. Create, explore and play music inspired by the Family Prom with a team of professional musicians. Suitable for all the family. You will be able to sign up for this event online from Monday Jun 10.)
