Programme Note

Join Nottingham Symphony Orchestra and friends for an unforgettable evening of music and dance – in support of local charity Hope Nottingham.

Thrill to the classic tale of Peter & The Wolf.

Laugh with delight at the UK premiere of A Propos D’Animaux – “Much Ado About Animals”.

Marvel at the balletic grace of The Firebird.

Lose yourself  in the emotional intensity of Swan Lake (violin soloist Braimah Kanneh-Mason).

And be amazed at the conducting debut of 11-year-old Matthew Smith – with the challenging Overture Die Fledermaus.

From well-loved classics to new favourites, a fabulous blend of music, dance and drama will entertain young and old alike. Frances Finn (BBC Radio Nottingham and Notts TV) will be your guide as you enjoy the show.

Nottingham Symphony Orchestra is delighted to be collaborating with Sandra Taylor School of Dance, a massed choir drawn from Nottinghamshire schools, Sally Galet (composer of A Propos D’Animaux), and Braimah Kanneh-Mason. We are proud to support Hope Nottingham and The Children's Society in their work to transform the lives of those in need.
