Brightly coloured skivvies will soon be seen amongst the black and white tails of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as musicians get Wiggly ahead of two shows with the world’s most popular children’s entertainment group, The Wiggles.
The Wiggles Meet the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra concerts on Friday 5 June will launch the latest CD release from the world-renowned entertainers and Melbourne’s very own Orchestra, recorded earlier this year.
The concerts and CD release will feature a line-up of classical versions of favourites including Rock A Bye Your Bear, Do the Propeller , Twinkle Twinkle Little Star , Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car and Wags the Dog, He Likes to Tango and will introduce children to the magical world of orchestral music.
Audiences - both kids and parents alike - are encouraged to sing and dance along with Anthony (Blue), Emma (Yellow), Lachy (Purple), Simon (Red) and a full Orchestra at the Melbourne Town Hall.
The Wiggles will of course be bringing along all their good friends, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus to these special shows.
