“Musical Stories: Gaspard’s Foxtrot & Peter and the Wolf” 

Alongside the classic Peter and the Wolf, join Gaspard the friendly fox and his furry chums in a warm-hearted adventure, performed by their creator Zeb Soanes with live on-stage painting from the series illustrator, James Mayhew. Accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, this is the perfect way to introduce children to a live orchestra through images and storytelling.

Watch a teaser video from Zeb Soanes here, and find out more about Gaspard the Fox here.  If you’d like to purchase the book Gaspards Foxtrot ahead of the performance, you can find it here, as well as most other book suppliers.

Scheme of Work

With your booking you will receive a free scheme of work, written specifically for Key Stage 1which explores the concert theme and content. The scheme encompasses individual lessons and accompanying resources that can be delivered in the classroom by the class teacher. It will also introduce the performers and provide relevant background information to prepare for your visit. 

The scheme of work allows learners to develop knowledge and skills, linked to the national curriculum, and will enhance their experience at the concert.

Really well thought out range of activities. The background information was useful and having the links ready to go was excellent it made the lessons accessible for us.

“I particularly love the PowerPoint slides. They provided background information on the orchestra, instruments, conductor and so on.
