Musical Rumpus: Lyrebird

Back to What's On

The music is wonderful... the performance is perfect for little ones.’ - Audience member

A Spitalfields Music production

Musical Rumpus is an interactive, multisensory experience especially for pre-school children.

Before words and music existed, sound blossomed into beautiful loops and patterns and sang the world into being. Inspired by the Australian lyrebird – an animal that can mimic any sound and make it into song – award-winning Spitalfields Music presents an enchanting adventure in music, written by Zoë Palmer and composer Soosan Lolavar.

As the story unfolds in a space full of sounds and colours, you and your child can discover making music together.
