PARENTS hoping to get their children interested in classical music have been invited to a concert by Royal Northern Sinfonia.

The orchestra's latest Classics 4 Kids concert, aimed at children five and over, will be held Sage Gateshead at 2pm tomorrow (Saturday).

Sage Gateshead classical music producer Helen Blythe said: “The Classics 4 Kids concerts are a fantastic way to engage your children in listening to and enjoying classical music.

“Rather than performing works which are written specifically for children, we’re offering the ‘real deal’ – Main Series Royal Northern Sinfonia repertoire – but we’re making it more accessible.

Tomorrow's Saturday’s concert will feature music from Richard Strauss’ Horn Concerto No.1 and Schoenberg’s Ten Early Waltzes, conducted by RNS Conductor Laureate Thomas Zehetmair.

Adding to the concert experience, there will be free violin instrument demonstrations and other musical activities on the Concourse from 1.15pm, as well as a ‘classical music disco’ after the concert.

Tickets available at or box office on 0191-443-4661.
