Cherished by children and adults alike, The Snowman is the soundtrack to everyone’s Christmas. We’re walking in the air…join the Snowman and James on their magical journey through the winter sky in this special showing of the festive classic on the large screen, accompanied by the BSO. Guaranteed to send tingles down your spine as you relive this enchanted animated film together with a live orchestral performance of Howard Blake’s iconic score. The extended second half of the evening celebrates the coming of the holiday season, the Orchestra is joined by BSO Voices for a selection of Christmas classics, including Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, The 12 Days of Christmas and Jingle Bells, as well as an exciting selection of Disney songs from Beauty and the Beast and Frozen.
