Schools’ Concerts: The Chimpanzees of Happytown
Ensemble 360 & Polly Ives (narrator)
Wednesday 7 June, 10.30am and 1.30pm

A fun, informal and interactive LIVE MUSIC CONCERT for 3-7 year olds.

Following on from the immensely popular commissioned pieces for young children including Stan and Mabel and Sir Scallywag and the Battle of Stinky Bottom comes The Chimpanzees of Happytown, with original music by our Children’s Composer in Residence Paul Rissmann. Featuring quality live music from Ensemble 360, lots of audience participation and image projections from the book, these concerts bring together children and teachers from schools and nurseries across Barnsley. A teacher’s resource pack will give you the resources and ideas you need to put music at the heart of your curriculum. It's also a load of fun!  

Based on the book by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees, published by Orchard.

Duration: 1 hour (no interval)

Get to know and love the book before the concert; download the teachers' resource pack or sing along with Polly by watching the video
