SCO 23-24: The Great Grumpy Gaboon

About SCO 23-24: The Great Grumpy Gaboon

Listen very carefully,

Can you hear a sad tune?

Those are the moans and the groans

of The Great Grumpy Gaboon!

Have you ever felt grumpy? That is exactly how the poor Gaboon feels – really, REALLY grumpy! While the Gaboon’s friends try everything to figure out what’s wrong, none of them realise that a musical mischief-maker is lurking in the shadows of the orchestra who holds the key to the Gaboon’s mood.

Join the Grumpy Gaboon and friends on this brand-new musical adventure as together they discover the importance of friendship and forgiveness.

These relaxed concerts are ideal for children aged four to eight and their grown-ups and provide an opportunity to hear live music in an informal environment.
