Free children's concert 23 May
at 12:00

Kon-Tiki Chamber Music Festival presents a free children's and family concert on the 23th of May at 12:00 at the Norwegian Maritime Museum; "Paddington the bear's first concert" and "Ferdinand the bull".

Paddington is based on a childhood favorite book by Michael Bond and follows the bear Paddington who travels as a stowaway on a ship from Peru to London where he meets his new friends: the Brown family and Mr. Gruber. He is introduced to concerts and music on his journey and the musical story includes pieces by Haydn, Rossini and Schubert.

Ferdinand the bull is a story about a bull who would rather smell beautiful flowers and enjoy life than fight in a bullfight. He is chosen to participate in the biggest competition in all of Spain, but what happens when he enters the arena? Find out at the concert!

We count down to – May 23th 2024
