children concerts

CRM has arranged and produced more than 50 children productions, with Symphony Orchestras and chamber ensembles in Sweden.

Every production is unique. It adapts to the needs of the ensemble and the audience and to the stage's possibilities. The ideas can often be developed, changed and recycled!

The Secret of Haja - Maja
"Once upon a time ... Ó Maria Carlsson says and 50 red pencils move energetically over lined paper. The students' creativity is flowing, inner visions of dolls, large theatrical puppets, makes up a colorful, fantastic and exciting story. The reason for this is that a wind quintet plays Darius Milhaud's La Cheminée du roi René in the classroom. It´s obvious that classical music can release children's creativity - isn´t it?

The result was anyhow a wonderful Puppet Theater - Music - Show.

A show with a pig called Lily, a squirrel called Mozart, a rabbit by the name of Beethoven, a girl called Sanna, a speaking tree, a frog-bridge, a Dragon and all those things that shows to be anything but what you thought they were ...
