A FAMILY Music Day, with Manchester Camerata and Chester Festivals, is on Saturday, February 9 at 10.30am-2.30pm at Chester Cathedral.
The event is aimed at children aged 7-11 and parents or guardians.
The day will include:
Hands on workshops where people can make an instrument,
A percussion workshop,
A session with Manchester Camerata musicians and storytellers to create a soundtrack to an Aboriginal story of the creation of the Earth.
The full story will be performed by everyone taking part at 1.30pm, in a performance for family and friends and is free.
Charlotte Spencer, Manchester Camerata’s Head of Learning and Participation, said: “This is a great opportunity for families to spend time together doing something creative and it’s a fun way for children to build confidence with the help of professional performers.”
Tickets for adult participants are £5, £3 for children, who must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
