EChO Kids' Cushion Concerts

Join WASO musicians for fun-filled musical adventures!

Children (and their grown-ups!) will be introduced to the instruments of the orchestra as they clap, sing and dance their way through stories and songs, well-known favourites and famous classics with one of our experienced presenters. Meet the WASO musicians and try our have-a-go instruments at the end of these performances which continue to inspire and delight audiences after more than 21 years.

Concert duration: 50 minutes
Suitable for 0 - 6 years.
