Come explorers! Get ready to travel across the world to discover new tales and tunes exploring who we are, and where we come from.

Meet Ivy! Ivy is excited to see the local carnival in Manchester. She attends but is too small to see anything. There are too many people, and so she misses the parade. Help us bring the carnival to Ivy, exploring carnivals from around the world, from Europe, the Americas and Asia.

This summer’s Terra Musica will feature young musicians from Chetham’s School of Music and One Education Music Service, featuring new music and story written by Tony Watt.
Here we go!

Perfect for children aged 5 – 7 and their family, Terra Musica weaves together different musical cultures, celebrating our different backgrounds through fun and engaging performances.

‘This is how a kids concert should be done.’ – Audience Feedback from Terra Music November 2023

ABOUT TONY WATT

Tony Watt is a musician, composer and musical director specialising in Brazilian rhythm and percussion. Since 1995, he has been the director of Manchester School of Samba (MSS), the first samba school in the North West of England, which combines Brazilian rhythm and melody with puppetry, costume and dance, in the tradition of Brazilian Carnival.  His music is inspired by his passion for South American music as well as his British-Caribbean heritage.
