This Easter, Music for Miniatures and Crescendo Concerts will be touring small, intimate performances of Paddington’s First Concert. With piano and narrator, plenty of multi sensory interaction, and of course Paddington himself, we tell the story of a small bear found on a station platform, his journey and life with the Brown family and his experience of a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. With story by Michael Bond and music by Herbert Chappell, join us on a furry adventure with live music. Suitable for age 3-5. Run time is 35 mins

Our Nutcracker tour was generously supported by Arts Council England. We're hugely grateful to them - without their support, it wouldn't have happened! Our project with Wiltshire Music Connect is also supported by  Arts Council England.

Paddington is on tour next, and then another production is coming in the autumn... With music at their core, and all theatrical chamber music shows, it's taking quite some organising! Watch this space...

About Crescendo Concerts

About Crescendo Concerts

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.


Our musicians are passionate about music and are all professional performers. 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 are directed by Julie Payne. Julie started Music for Miniatures and Crescendo Concerts after finding there were no opportunities for her to take her own children to experience high quality live music in a relatively relaxed atmosphere. Find out more about Julie and her work with schools, community groups and as a performing musician at www.juliepayne.info
