"It was perfect – the length of the performance, the characters and the content. For some of our children with more complex needs, the music alone was truly wonderful. These children do not often appear to focus on, or attend to, what is happening visually but, as we know, music fulfils many emotional and physical / sensory needs as well as being a real aid to communication for these children. A massive thank you to Crescendo Concerts."
From Special Schools we've visited:
What do we need?
- your school hall
- a power socket (just the one, for our piano!)
- 9 cups of tea
- 45 mins before the performance to set up, 1 hour to perform and about 20 mins afterwards to dismantle and get out of the way
- your pupils to perform to! Probably maximum of 300 in each show but it depends on the size of your hall!
"A fantastic way to enrich our wider curriculum!"

"All our children, and our staff were totally transfixed throughout! Simply brilliant."
A fabulous event for the whole school 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. 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 primary schools! 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!
"A massive thank you for giving us all such a wonderful experience at Larkrise last week. The beautiful music, the sense of fun and mischief and the other sensory elements that you incorporated (the petals and the texture of the wolf cape) all worked marvellously together to engage children all the way up from those at the earliest developmental stages to the teenagers."
