A day in Teddy’s life – Concert for kids 2-6 years old

The two sisters Karen Johanne Pedersen (Violin) and Kirstine Elise Pedersen (cello) describe a day in the teddy bear’s life with storytelling and music. The music examples spread across different genres, from early classical music to romance and folk music.
With them they have a big teddy bear which during the day experiences a lot and goes through a lot of emotions and mood swings that most children at that age can relate to.

The concert is 20 minutes long.

Tickets cost 20kr, can be bought upon arrival and are valid to see the museum’s exhibition during the day.

The concert is organized by the Scandinavian Cello School. Scandinavian Cello School celebrates its 5-year anniversary in 2021 with 17 concerts at Stevns in August and September.
