Conducting science

FUNharmonics family concert

Just how high can you hear? Exactly how do pieces of wood and metal produce the amazing sounds of an orchestra? And what are the special superpowers of our very own LPO musicians? Join science presenter and comedian Helen Arney (BBC Radio 4's Domestic Science), special guest scientists, and the LPO in our first ever concert hall laboratory to discover the answers to these questions and more.

With interactive experiments and demonstrations live on stage – and plenty of brilliant music – Conducting Science will give parents and children alike a chance to look down the microscope at the secrets behind the Orchestra's sounds. And don't forget to join us before the concert for hands-on foyer science fun and 'have-a-go' instrument sessions.

This concert is aimed at children aged 6 and over but family members of all ages are welcome.

This concert is part of Southbank Centre’s Imagine Children’s Festival.

Come and join the party! 10.00am – 12.00pm
