Peppa Pig is coming to Edinburgh's Usher Hall in 2020
PEPPA PIG is heading back to Edinburgh, and to the Usher Hall to give little ones their first experience of a live orchestral concert.
Peppa Pig: My First Concert is a fun and interactive introduction to a live orchestra that will take Peppa Pig fans on a magical musical journey. The tour will make a very special visit the Usher Hall on Wednesday 12 February 2020.
This production, based on Entertainment One’s popular animated television series, gives children a chance to experience their first concert in a way that is truly meaningful to them.
Specially designed for the youngest audience members, the concert allows them, together with Peppa, to discover an orchestra for the first time.
Children and their families can sing and dance along with Peppa to her favourite songs, watch as Daddy Pig learns how to conduct an orchestra (and all the mishaps and mayhem that involves), explore all the different sounds that the many instruments make, and get a chance to enjoy familiar Peppa tunes.They will also discover some exciting orchestral pieces along the way, all selected to be perfect for little ones, to capture their imagination and introduce them to a whole new world of music.
Flautist and children’s concert specialist, Jane Mitchell, has been heavily involved in the creation of this union between children’s entertainment and live orchestra. As Creative Director and principal flautist of critically acclaimed British chamber orchestra Aurora, Mitchell is incredibly well respected in the world of classical music.
In this new production, she has worked alongside arranger Iain Farrington to interweave beloved Peppa Pig songs into classics by Beethoven and others, including Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Grieg.
She says, “Orchestras are sometimes seen as inaccessible for young audiences. Breaking that down is incredibly rewarding - and playing Muddy Puddles alongside Mozart is amazing fun. The Peppa Pig audience is mostly under five, so that ‘Wow’ experience is really important. If you can reach them through a character they know and love, it’s a golden opportunity”
