Britten Sinfonia – Family Concert: Izzy Gizmo

12 August @ 11:30 am 12:30 pm

Based on Pip Jones’s best-selling children’s book with illustrations by Sara Ogilvie, this interactive family concert brings Izzy’s mechanical marvels and infectious creative spirit to life, with original music by Paul Rissmann performed by musicians from Britten Sinfonia, featuring pots, pans, whistles and household items, as well as orchestral instruments. Together with story-telling and visuals from the book, this concert is a great introduction to live music for children. It’s full of wit, invention, songs and actions, and plenty of opportunities to join in. Join us on Saturday 12th August at 11:30am and 2pm at West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge for the exciting story of Izzy Gizmo.  This concert is presented by Britten Sinfonia in partnership with Music in the Round. About the Artists  Britten Sinfonia For 30 years Britten Sinfonia has been pushing the boundaries of what a chamber orchestra can do. It is rooted in the East of England, where it is the only professional orchestra working throughout the region, while it also has a national and international reputation as one of the best ensembles playing today. Beyond the concert hall, Britten Sinfonia musicians work on creative and therapeutic projects with pre-school children, teenagers, young carers, people living with dementia, life-time prisoners and older people at risk of isolation. Polly Ives Polly Ives is one of the UK’s leading music educationalists with a varied portfolio as a concert presenter, narrator, promoter, workshop leader, trainer and cellist. Polly believes that music should be accessible to everyone from birth and throughout people’s lives. Her career has focused on finding unique and creative ways to provide high-quality musical experiences for young children (particularly 0-8 year olds) and their wide and varied communities. She regularly produces and presents children’s concerts (including with London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Mozart Players and Ensemble 360). She has worked with CBeebies, BBC Radio 3 and Scala Radio.
