Join Rachel Leach and musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra for our online, interactive Sound Explorers concert based on the popular children’s book Olivia Forms a Band by Ian Falconer.
We invite primary school children and their families to join in with this 30-minute musical version of Olivia Forms A Band. Sing or play along, grab an instrument if you have one, and join in with three original songs. Plus hear pieces of classical music performed by LSO musicians and see illustrations from the book on screen, all helping us to tell the story.
Available until 29 December 2020.
