Children can soon explore the biggest mysteries at PAC

Children can explore some of the world’s biggest mysteries when Sinfonia Viva Orchestra and Classically Yours bring their latest interactive show Wait, What? to Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) on Friday 1 March, with performances at 1pm & 5pm.

Following the success of Sinfonia Viva’s The Boat & The Blue and Where’s That Monster shows, Wait, What? will explore some of the biggest questions asked by curious children everywhere.

One day Sandy realises that there are lots of things in the world that don’t make any sense – like how does the water get into our taps? And, where do clouds come from?

Children can join in and help Sandy get to the bottom of it in this latest interactive musical show that forms part of the award winning Classically Yours series of events.
Classically Yours won the 2018 Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award in the Audiences and Engagement category.

PAC director Janet Farmer said: “It’s always a delight to welcome Sinfonia Viva to PAC, where they are sure to inspire and engage our younger audiences who may well be the musical maestros of the future. Our intimate auditorium provides the perfect space for an interactive show such as this, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to PAC for what I’m sure will be a fun experience.”

The interactive performance features new orchestral music to sing and clap along to, written and presented by composer Jack Ross and performed by the award-winning Sinfonia Viva.

Live music will sit alongside art projections by illustrator Eleanor Meredith, and the show will be fully BSL interpreted by Julie Thompson.

After the concert, children will have the chance to take part in musical and artistic activities with Viva musicians.

Every child will also receive a book of the story and a CD of the new music recorded by Viva musicians, allowing you to relive this performance again, and again.
