Sydney Youth Orchestras

The Sydney Youth Orchestras will be performing at Proms Extra: Classics for Kids on Saturday 16 April, conducted by John Ockwell.

The BBC Proms welcomes Sydney Youth Orchestras to Melbourne to capture the hearts, minds and imaginations of small children (aged 2 – 8) and inspire a life-long love of music. These interactive concerts feature repertoire by the very best classical composers, especially Haydn and Mozart. Presented in an entertaining, engaging and educational style, Classics for Kids are a celebration of music sure to delight little ones who may be surprised that the talented young musicians performing are in fact not much older than themselves! Parents, grandparents and carers can be confident their child will experience a unique and special introduction to orchestral music that is fun.

Legendary music educator John Ockwell conducts and narrates, introducing children to the orchestral instruments, the concepts of dynamics and tempi, as well as a classical orchestra. A great introduction to the world of live classical music, conducting and musical instruments.
