The concert features an exciting selection of repertoire that will take the audience on a journey through the magical night. We will be exploring the night sky, the marvellous moon and stars, and some magical film music. There will also be the premiere of James Redwood’s new participatory piece, Cant’ Get To Sleep, created with schools in the BCP area and built-in partnership with SoundStorm.

It's an unmissable opportunity for the children to see live classical music that they almost certainly would not choose, or be able to afford to see at any other time. I also hope it might begin a desire to learn to play an instrument.
