Home Concert: Roderick Williams

Concerteenies is a concert series for babies, toddlers and their grown-ups. During lockdown, top professional musicians are still performing from their homes straight to yours to keep families entertained and inspired.

Join Roderick Williams OBE (baritone, piano), his wonderful family (cello, piano, vocals, bass guitar, clarinet, camera, artwork, cookery and witty banter!) and Iain Burnside (piano) for this concert – live streamed on 3 May and available to enjoy online any time in the video below.

The concert includes music from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, Bizet's Carmen, Greensleeves, Autumn Leaves, Richard Rodney Bennett's 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' from Songs for Sleep. Get some coloured paper together to make a butterfly and a star as you watch. Rock your teddy. Make yourself some toast!

These concerts are normally live and ticketed so if you’re able to 'pay what you like', the musicians and organisers would massively appreciate it – donate here.
