Peppa Pig and her family have been part of our lives for many years now. We regularly watch the show, sometimes in different languages, and have been to see a few of the Peppa Pig Live shows. Little E used to have a Peppa Pig toy that never left her side and last year we finally got to visit Peppa Pig World. This year Peppa and her family will be introducing you to another live show, Peppa Pig My First Concert.
Peppa Pig – My First Concert
The new live show, Peppa Pig – My First Concert, is a fun and interactive introduction to music with a live orchestra. This special Peppa Pig show is designed for the youngest audience members. Together with Peppa, they will be able to discover an orchestra for the first time.
In this concert, the children and their families will be able to sing and dance along with Peppa to her favourite songs. They will be able to watch Daddy Pig learn how to conduct an orchestra. This also gives them the chance to explore all the different sounds that the instruments make. Enjoy familiar Peppa tunes as well as discovering some exciting orchestral pieces. The selected music is perfect for little ones. With the aim to capture their imagination and introduce them to a whole new world of music.
Jane Mitchell, Flautist and children’s concert specialist, has been heavily involved in the creation of this union between children’s entertainment and a live orchestra. In this new production, she worked alongside arranger Iain Farrington to interweave beloved Peppa Pig songs into classics by Beethoven and others, including Tchaikovsky, Mozart, and Grieg.
“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”Jane Mitchell
