Seven to 12-year-olds are invited on her journey through music, with the London Symphony Orchestra playing extracts along the way from Beethoven, Shostakovich and a whole craftful of other composers.
At the helm is conductor Elim Chan, the Hong Kong-born first ever woman to win, in 2014, the important Donatella Flick Conducting Competition. As well as working with the London Symphony Orchestra, she is Principal Conductor of the Orchestra of Norrlands Operan and is the new Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
She will guide Keplar, and young audiences, through excerpts from Richard Strauss's imposing Also Sprach Zarathustra, John Adams' thrilling Short Ride in a Fast Machine and Beethoven's powerful Symphony No 5.
The audience will need to help out when it comes to Jupiter from Holst's The Planets, and there will be drama from Shostakovich and flying thrills from John Williams' irresistible music for E.T.
This concert for the whole family is one of a series. Watch Culture Whisper for more classical music for growing ears.
