emma leads docklands sinfonia in premiere of the caretaker's guide to the orchestra

Docklands Sinfonia (with Emma at the helm) were thrilled to be performing for hundreds of children from Tower Hamlets on July 3rd and 4th 2017, in 3 performances at The People's Palace.

The Caretaker's Guide to the Orchestra was received with excitement and rapture! Written by acclaimed composer Jeremy Holland-Smith, narrated by children's author James Mayhew and directed by the Royal Opera House's Will Tuckett, The Caretaker's Guide took the children on a thrilling journey of musical discovery.

Composer Jeremy Holland-Smith recently orchestrated the music for the Universal hit film 'Sing'. His fresh and approachable score was choreographed by Will Tuckett, who recently won an Olivier Award for his production of 'Wind in the Willows.'

James Mayhew, author of much-loved children's books such as 'Ella Bella Ballerina' and 'Katie's Pictures', was narrating, as well as painting live scenes from the music. The audience watched in awe as his amazing pictures came to life on a huge screen as the orchestra played.
