Baby Proms turn SEVEN!

The Auckland Philharmonia’s Baby Proms, which have been an annual highlight for the past seven years, are punchy 50 minute concerts designed to provide 2-6 year olds with a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of live orchestra.

Baby Proms have always been an outstanding success. The orchestra’s Director of Operations, John Ure, who was instrumental in initiating the concerts, says the success lies in a combination of things. “The programme we present is different each year but is always a combination of short, familiar classical works and children’s songs. Audience participation is also encouraged throughout the concerts, and the ‘walk through the orchestra’, when the children walk along a path through the various sections of the orchestra while the musicians are playing, is always a major highlight. Overall, there’s a real sense of fun and excitement about Baby Proms,” he says.

The 2004 Baby Proms are conducted by entertaining maestro, Simon Romanos, with popular children’s entertainer Jennifer Moss presenting the concerts and leading the singing. As in previous years, Baby Proms tickets are in great demand – book now and treat your children to a special and very rewarding experience.

BABY PROMS Concert Details:
Saturday 3 April – 12.30pm & 2pm, Auckland Town Hall
Monday 5 April – 10.30pm & 12pm, Bruce Mason Centre
Tickets: adults $10, children $5. Book online at www.aucklandphil.co.nz or phone 0800-PHILHARMONIA (0800 744 542).

Baby Proms are supported by the Endeavour Charitable Trust, The Edge Community Arts Programme and the North Shore City Council. The Auckland Philharmonia receives major funding from Creative New Zealand and a major grant from Auckland City.
