Partnership is latest in a series of new events-based initiatives to celebrate 30 years of Elmer.
Andersen Press has confirmed a unique collaboration with the world-famous, London Symphony Orchestra.
The partnership is the latest in a series of new events-based initiatives to celebrate 30 years of Elmer in 2019.
The LSO musicians will deliver their birthday tribute to Elmer the Patchwork Elephant with a musical re-telling of the latest book in the Elmer series – Elmer’s Walk – featuring specially commissioned music by composer Lillie Harris created for the under 5s.
Two performances will take place at The Jerwood Hall in LSO St Luke’s, London at 10am and 11.30am on June 23.
An interactive concert for mini music makers, Elmer’s Walk offers younger children a chance to experience a live performance and to dance and sing their way through the concert as the instruments bring the tale to life.
“We’ve worked in collaboration with London Symphony Orchestra for a number of years now, but this is the first time we’ve worked with them on an Elmer story, and there’s no better time to do it as we celebrate 30 years of Elmer,” said Paul Black, PR and brand director at Andersen Press.
“Partnering with LSO on the mindful Elmer’s Walk is a unique and fun way for fans old and new to see the story brought to life, by world-class musicians.”
