The History Of Music (Buzz Brass)

The History of Music

Fancy a good laugh? Like music? Perfect! This show is great fun, musically excellent and completely enjoyable for both children and adults. The style is similar to the ‘Horrible Histories’ series and children will enjoy the daftness whilst romping through a tour of the history of music. The musical examples are played and acted out by a first class brass quintet, with a likeable flair for humour and for pleasing a crowd without uttering a word, and it’s narrated by a hilariously egotistical MC who engages easily and naturally with his young audience. I can’t praise this show highly enough for imparting sophisticated information in a way that both teaches and amuses children. Demystifies the musical mystique with a big smile!

New Town Theatre, until 30 Aug.
