A special early years music live broadcast live from Ushaw Historic House, Chapels & Gardens 

A limited number of tickets are available to watch the event live - please click the book button.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) will perform ‘The Apple Tree’, featuring soprano Kirsty Hopkins. The 45 minute long performance will be a fabulous opportunity to introduce young children to the world of orchestral music, from the comfort of your home, early years setting or classroom.

A friendly old apple tree and the source of a tasty, juicy snack! But a month later, the tree is bare. Icicles suddenly appear, followed by leaves, then blossom, and then birds and bees. But will there ever be any more juicy apples to eat?

Children will learn about the changing seasons through a mixture of Baroque and folk music, and meet the magnificent instruments of the orchestra. This concert is designed for two to five year olds and has received rave reviews from families – you will be watching it online with hundreds of other children, teachers and families across the country.

With lots of opportunities for singing, signing and joining in, this will be a lively and interactive event, designed to be accessible to all.
