Portsmouth Chamber Music Series: Hampshire

31 January 2022 | 1:30 pm

Izzy Gizmo (Schools Concert)

Best-selling children’s book, Izzy Gizmo, by Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie, tells the enchanting story of an intrepid young inventor who puts her talents to work to rescue a crow that can’t fly. This brand-new family concert brings Izzy’s mechanical marvels and infectious creative spirit to life! Featuring original music including 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 music for children. It’s full of wit, invention, songs and actions, and plenty of opportunities to join in.

Commissioned by Sheffield-based Music in the Round, the concert features music by Paul Rissmann, Music in the Round’s award-winning Composer-in-Residence, with illustrations from the book animated especially for the concert by Vic Craven. Children and their grown-ups are encouraged to participate in the concert by joining in with songs and actions taught by presenter Polly Ives at the beginning of the show.
