Now a regular highlight of Christmas in Chelsea, the Mozart Symphony Orchestra returns to Cadogan Hall for its annual performance of the timeless classic, The Snowman, for which the film is shown on the big screen with a live symphony orchestra providing the soundtrack. 13-year-old Alice Mackenzie sings the aria made so famous by Aled Jones: ‘Walking in the Air’.
Following the huge success of The Gruffalo (for narrator and orchestra) at Cadogan Hall last summer, it makes a welcome return alongside its sequel, The Gruffalo’s Child. Rather like Peter and the Wolf, each character in the tale is represented by a different instrument of the orchestra… what will the Gruffalo be?
This concert is the perfect antidote to panto and a wonderful Christmas treat for all the family.
This performance is family-friendly. Babes in arms (children up to 2 years of age) are permitted to share a seat with each full paying adult. Children aged two years or more will require a paid ticket and seat. Booster seats are available on request (limited availability on a first-come, first-served basis).
