Programme Note

Due to the continuing pandemic, the Orchestra is unable to join the Chorus at their concert on 19th March for space reasons. So the Orchestra have taken the opportunity to do an extra family concert on their own. It's an entertaining programme designed for a family audience, but which will appeal to adults and younger listeners alike.   

Prokofiev's much loved tale of Peter and the Wolf is paired with a witty musical who-dunnit, The Composer is Dead, Nathaniel Stookey’s setting of the children’s book by Lemony Snicket.' Celebrated theatre impresario, Peter Wilson, brings the stories vividly to life and introduces the concert, which also includes the Finale from Stravinsky’s Firebird, the Waltz of the Flowers from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker (both works from the BBC’s 10 Pieces music project for schools) and film music from Harry Potter by John Williams
