From brook to brook, to the birds, bees and butterflies, we rejoice the return of Spring. Nature reawakens to the chirping of Vivaldi's masterpiece Four Seasons, Dvorak's sonatina for his children inspired by the New World, and the energetic violin sonata by Beethoven in an ode to new life and new beginnings.

Featuring Charis Hanning, piano & Matthew McCombie, piano

Come one, come all to see the animals big and small. Join the regal lion, the dancing elephant, the cuckoo in the wood, the tortoise who knows how to beat the hare, the fossils (no, Mummy's not that old), the bouncy kangaroo and the long-eared donkey, as our pianists bring you the glorious music of Saint-Saëns. All that, plus your favourite nursery rhymes to finish, of course!

About the venue

The Foundling Museum tells the extraordinary story of The Foundling Hospital, Britain's first home for abandoned children, whose charity work continues to this day through the childcare organisation, Coram. The museum is situated directly opposite the wonderful 'haven for play' Coram's Fields. This seven acre, families-only playground is perfect for an afternoon of exploring or picnicking following a Bach to Baby concert, and on rainy days there's bountiful lunch options at the nearby Brunswick Centre. We are grateful for the Foundling Museum's generous offer of free entry to the museum for Bach to Baby attendees.
