Can your child tell the season is changing? Yeah, so could Vivaldi. That means your child could be a musical prodigy! Be at this interactive concert to find out. After about 45 min of listening (that should be enough for most prodigies), they’ll be able to test their skills with the instruments. If daddy listens to a lot of Nirvana, please have a talk to your kids before about not smashing the violins.

Recommended if you like: checking your children for possible prodigy tendencies, classical music, seasons (all 4 of them), musical instruments that don’t have an on/off button, Vivaldi
