Too proud of his shiny, glimmering scales to join in with the other fish, Rainbow Fish soon becomes the loneliest fish in the entire ocean. However, with some advice from a wise octopus, Rainbow Fish soon discovers the joy of friendship and the importance of being kind to others.

The Hallé is back at St Peter’s in Ancoats, Manchester, with Marcus Pfister’s favourite tale of acceptance and friendship. Here to bring the story to life in this interactive concert are nine accomplished Hallé musicians and a dancer. And see Hallé musicians as you’ve never seen them before – acting, dancing and even singing!

The performance is a perfect 40 minute introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, ideal for children aged 3–7 years. With a score specially written by the Hallé’s Education Director, Steve Pickett – with kind permission from Marcus Pfister, this series of half-term concerts is back for the third year as part of the Family Arts Festival.

In association with Carex.

Our performance of Rainbow Fish will feature a very special appearance from Clippy the Crab who has his very own song and dance! Why don’t you make your own Clippy the Crab so you can dance along too? For instructions and templates, visit the link below:
