I'm about to head into my busy weekend.
I have Babies Proms to start off the day. These are a fun series of concerts that are put on by my youth orchestra that are designed to introduce young people to classical music. It's a hugely successful series, and they get sold out quickly.
Thankfully, they're all in the one place, and one after another, so I don't have to rush around at the start.
I'm there from 9am to 2pm. After this, I rush straight so that I can teach one of my students. He missed out on a lesson last week, so I've kinda got to make sure he gets this one.
Then I rush back to where I did the babies proms, as my Uni Orchestra is giving a concert outside and we've got to have a sound check at 5pm. Then I think I've got a bit of time for dinner before the concert.
Sunday isn't so busy, but I've got the babies proms again - this time from 9:30-2pm. Then a bit of time at home before getting up for church for my Palm Sunday serivce. Looking forward to that, since it's been about 3 weeks since I've been able to get to church, thanks to Uni scheduling rehearsals on Sundays.

Babies Proms...I love that! What is the age of the target audience? There are lots of "young people's concerts" events here, but they're still geared to ages 7 and older. I wish we had something available for my toddler daughters---I've taken the 4-year-old to community orchestras, but the quality is somewhat lacking.
The Babies proms are geared at kids from about 3 through to about 12. Lots of fun. Check out WA Youth Music
- if you contact them they might have some DVD's left over of a recording they did a couple of years ago. But I make no guarantees
