A narrated performance of Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf in three episodes will be the main feature interspersed with other works to keep children (and adults) entertained.
All the children will be invited to join the orchestra on percussion instruments (handed out in the concert) in performances of Robert Farnon’s Jumping Bean and Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride. Solos for the flute, oboe and clarinet will also be included. The concert will end with Bizet's lively Galop from his Jeux d'Enfants.

The concert opens with Grieg's popular evocation of morning from Peer Gynt and then we welcome the return of our soloist for the concerto. Eva has impressed our audience on every occasion she has played concertos with us. We look forward to working with her for this performance of Tchaikovsky’s popular concerto. The Sibelius symphony, with its colourful orchestration and big tunes, is one of the favourites of the concert hall.
