New for 2017: The CSO, in partnership with the Christchurch City Libraries, is delighted to introduce Music Trails through the Library.
These free 45-minute performances by CSO ensembles provide a fun and interactive way of introducing young people to live music. With elements of dance, song and stories, Music Trails through the Library is a great opportunity for children to see the instruments up close and join in with the musical fun.
Free, caregiver required.
Proudly brought to you by the CSO and Leighs Construction.
