Adventure at Sea

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Hoist the mainsail! It's time to set off on a musical adventure at sea with CBBC’s Naomi Wilkinson and the brilliant BBC Concert Orchestra.

Are you ready to join their crew? Everyone is welcome aboard. Hear magical music from far-flung places, learn the hornpipe, brave the stormy high seas, swim with fabulous fish at bottom of the ocean and battle bloodthirsty pirates. And why not dress up – we would love to meet some sailors, pirates or sea creatures along the way.


BBC Concert Orchestra
Jessica Cottis conductor
Naomi Wilkinson presenter


Programme includes: Music from Blue Planet, The Little Mermaid, Poldark, Pirates of the Caribbean and works by Benjamin Britten & Carl Nielsen
