The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra has unveiled an innovative children’s project, designed to introduce the enchanting world of classical music to young audiences in a lively and captivating manner.

Led by artistic director Maria Blanco, Do-Re-Mi promises to breathe life into seven distinct orchestral instruments, through interactive orchestral and chamber music concerts.

The musical odyssey begins with a Family Fanfare orchestral concert at St Agatha’s Auditorium in Rabat, hosted by Christopher Spiteri and conducted by Roderick Bugeja on November 3 at 6pm.

Children will have the unique opportunity to forge connections with the musical characters created by scriptwriter Simon Bartolo, listen to professional music performances and participate in engaging age-appropriate workshops.

The programme continues with a selection of entertaining and educational chamber music performances on Sunday mornings from November to June.

Tickets for Do-Re-Mi are available here. Children enter for free.
