Our musicians are passionate about music. Music, to them, is what makes the world go round. They want to share that passion with everyone, but especially children, to inspire them to enjoy music, maybe learn an instrument, but most of all, to be receptive to all kinds of music.

Crescendo Concerts put children right next to musicians.

For us, this is vital if we want to inspire children to learn more about music.​ ​The music is amazing, the musicians are brilliant and

there's lots of fun to be had! ​​

A huge variety of music chosen especially for children played by fabulous professional musicians.


Crescendo Concerts are performing a live version of Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes in Autumn 2016!

A fabulous event for the whole family as Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes are brought to life! Enter the world of Miss Riding Hood as she journeys through the forest, watch as three pigs build their houses and hear all about a Tummy Beast…

6 musicians and 3 actors form the cast for this spectacular telling of the famous Revolting Rhymes. Performed in the round, the performance is aimed at children aged 4-11 and their families with a mask making workshop beforehand to make your own mask to wear during the show. The performance includes the Revolting Rhymes - Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and from Dirty Beasts, The Pig, The Tummy Beast and The Crocodile.

With words by Roald Dahl, music by Paul Patterson and Martin Butler, and directed by Petra Schofield, this is a fabulous production for anyone with children of primary school age! Experience what it’s like to be up close to a flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn and piano played by professionals, and watch as the live action unfolds right in front of you to tell the dramatic stories… A MUST-SEE show! Suitable for children aged 4+.

There are 5 public performances of Revolting Rhymes Live! Click on the date to book tickets for each one.

There are only 5 public performances in 2016, plus we're touring a few lucky schools.

If your school would like us to perform in 2017, please get in touch - email info@crescendoconcerts.co.uk


Crescendo! concerts are designed to be the next step up from

Music for Miniatures - baby-friendly concerts for children from 0-4.

Crescendo concerts are run by the same team as the hugely successful Music for Miniatures (baby and toddler friendly concerts).

If you want to find out more about Music for Miniatures, please visit www.musicforminiatures.co.uk 

"Concerts such as this are more important than ever, to remind us that music is special, is not stuffy and is above all, fun. Thank you."

Sadly, live music in schools is rare nowadays. Children generally have no idea what instruments sound like when played really well, or what they look like. Crescendo Concerts aim to address this! We want to inspire and educate the next generation so they grow up knowing what an oboe looks and sounds like, why the bassoon is amazing and why the french horn is so cool.

Fabulous concerts for children aged 4-11 with a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere 

Professional musicians performing great music especially for children

Tickets for Crescendo Concerts cost £9 per adult/child pair (one adult plus one child), £4 per extra adult or child. ​
