Programme Note

Snow blizzards, icicles and freezing rain. Fun for the imagination whilst sitting on plush, warm theatre seats. Our concert's frosty journey will sleigh-ride families to winter palaces heard in Disney's Frozen film music, fly them over meringue-looking landscapes with Walking In the Air from TheSnowman, before landing them on ice to enjoy The Skaters' Waltz by Waldteufel.


But there will be no images to look at and no ice skates, just music to listen to so the children can develop their own imaginative winter scenes. What they will get to see are all the instruments of the orchestra: loud brass, large double bases and drums; along with seeing dashing bows from the string players and hearing all the different tones from the many wind instruments. They will frequently hear the percussionist create sleigh bells, chimes and clip-clopping horse hooves. Our guest conductor Janet Elston's enthusiasm will really fizz and we look forward to seeing you in your best Christmas jumpers.
