Thank you to everyone who joined us and jumped, danced, sang, bumped and rowed their way round Europe with us at our TOTS Concert in the Little Top at Greenwich Summer Festival last Saturday (4 Aug). What an amazing atmosphere…

For those of you who’d like to listen again to anything we played, here’s the programme as promised:

Opening and closing piece:  Horn Minuet from Water Music Suite No.1 by Handel
‘Going on a Journey’ using the beginning of Autumn from The Four Seasons, by Vivaldi
Rondeau ‘Les Sauvages’ from  ‘Les Indes Galantes’ by Rameau (France)
Das Älster Schäffer Dorff Musik, from Älster Overture by Telemann (Germany)
Allegro and Presto from La Battalia by Biber (Austria)
Extracts from La Follia by Geminiani (Italy – Pinocchio visits the Olympics)

The players were:

Jill Samuel and Claire Samson Violins
Nick Logie Viola
Jenny Bullock Cello
Cecelia Bruggemeyer Double Bass
Ruth Theobald and Cherry Forbes Oboes (Cherry also narrated our Pinocchio story)

Our next season sees us back with more Tots Concerts at the Southbank Centre. For full information and to book, visit our Education pages.
