Little adventurers! It’s time for some music adventure again! Join us to experience an aural banquet through Matsuri to explore the wide range of percussion instruments. Have you ever thought of how a walnut could tumble musically, and that ducks can bicker? Or that a number game of Ten, Eight, Six, Four and Two can be a world of fun rhythms? Why do we clap our hands whenever we hear Radetzky March? Let us hit on our drums together and drum up a colourful storm at the concert!
