Live music for young children and their grown-ups with sensory engagement

This special series aims to give you and your very little ones (pre-crawlers) a relaxing and inspiring concert experience, within the beautiful setting of Whirlow Spirituality Centre. The Woodfield String Quartet will play beautiful string music weaving in well-loved classical music, nursery rhymes and lullabies - there won't be many spoken introductions to the music nor formal applause. We encourage you to bring a blanket and a pillow so you and your little can enjoy a lie on the floor - maybe even a little sleep! There will also be gentle sensory elements encorporating sound, sight, touch, including bubbles, scarves, feathers and simple baby massage techniques for you to explore with your little one at your own pace. Sit in the relaxing lounge or gardens after the concert for a free coffee or a selection of teas and enjoy a calm catch up with fellow new parents.

The Woodfield String Quartet was formed in 2017, brought together to perform a concert to celebrate the life of local music teacher and instrument maker Joseph Worrall. Since our inaugural concert at The Chapel on the Bridge in Rotherham, the quartet has enjoyed performing to audiences across Yorkshire by putting on recitals, giving workshops for schools and providing music for weddings and other special events. The four musicians, Rosie, Hannah (violins), Julie (viola) and Polly (cello) between them have also performed and worked with CBSO, Ensemble 360, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Opera House, CBeebies, Josh Groban, Smokey Robinson and Barry Manilow! They have also taught with Sheffield and Rotherham Music Hubs and led workshops and children's concerts around the UK. Our mission is to deliver excellence in our music making, to enthuse audiences and to encourage children and young people to engage with music making.
