What is Concertini
A ‘Concertini’ is a bite-size, live music experience aimed at families with children age 0 - 8. Each Concertini features a different live band or ensemble and is produced in a relaxed and enjoyable way.
Concerts take place in venues and schools throughout the Thames Valley, last under an hour and are followed by the chance to meet the musicians and their instruments and even have a go!
Who we are
Concertini was formed in May 2015 by musician, teacher and mum of two Julia Bentley Dawkes. Born into a musical family Julia passionately believes that everyone can benefit from live music and the earlier we introduce it the better.
“The purpose of each Concertini is to introduce children and their families to different styles of live music and musical instruments, to prepare them for the enjoyment of future live music events, to nurture a love of music and to provide an opportunity for families to listen to live music in a relaxed community setting.”
What a fabulous family experience exploring the glorious world of the Big Band.
