Animal magic with Nottingham Symphony Orchestra

Nottingham Symphony Orchestra will be performing a concert entitled Animal Magic on April 2, from 6pm.

Sunday, 25th December 2016, 4:35 pm

Taking place at the city’s Royal Concert Hall, this will be a spectacular celebration of all creatures, great and small, providing music fun for the whole family.

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 (with violin soloist Braimah Kanneh-Mason), and be amazed at the conducting debut of 11-year-old Matthew Smith, with the challenging Overture Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II.
