For Crying Out Loud!

For parents or carers and their babies up to 1 year old


These concerts are intended for babies under the age of 1 year old. The concerts are specifically devised to be appropriate for this age, so please consider the impact older children may have on the overall experience. If your child is over the age of 1, you may be interested in booking for one of our Chamber Tots workshops targeted at 1-5 year olds.

The Hermes Experiment is passionate about contemporary and experimental music and regularly commissions new works, as well as creating their own innovative arrangements and venturing into live free improvisation. Park Lane Group Young Artists 2015/16, and winners of Nonclassical’s Battle of the Bands 2014, the ensemble is establishing itself on the London contemporary classical scene, with regular performances across the city for organisations including Nonclassical, Kammerklang, Listenpony and Bastard Assignments. The ensemble is also dedicated to the value of contemporary music in education and community contexts.

Although these concerts are not interactive, the programmes are designed for adults and babies to enjoy together.
