Family Concert: Once Upon A Tune
With Britten Sinfonia
Live illustration, colourful music and storytelling merge in this magical family concert from author and illustrator James Mayhew and Britten Sinfonia.
Mayhew’s recent book Once Upon A Tune is brought to life by Britten Sinfonia, as stories of celebrated pieces of music – including Grieg’s In The Hall of the Mountain King, Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Rossini’s William Tell – emerge before our eyes, while Mayhew’s captivating work is projected from his easel on to a big screen.
Once Upon A Tune was the Sunday Times and Guardian Children’s Book of the Year 2021.
