The concert opens with A Christmas Overture, a toe-tapping Christmas Medley followed by a fun and festive guide to the orchestra. All the instruments are presented in a fun and approachable way, offering the young audience members the valuable experience of seeing - and hearing - the instruments individually.
In addition we also commission new animations to show in the first half.
The Bear and the Piano
This beautifully illustrated tale of music, friendship and adventure was first brought to the big screen in 2017, in a specially commissioned version by Carrot Productions which captures the essence of the original. With music by Daniel Whibley played live by a professional orchestra, and a narration recorded by superstar Joanna Lumley this entrancing creation looks set to become a family favourite for the next generation.
A Donkey’s Tale
The world premiere of a brand new work created specially for Carrot by Daniel Whibley. Set amidst the wild landscape of Connemara in the west of Ireland, it tells the heartwarming story of Dillon, an ordinary donkey with an extraordinary dream that takes him on a journey that will change his life.
Daniel Whibley’s take on a traditional favourite. The orchestra accompanies the story on the big screen with beautiful illustrations by Jacky Fleming and live narration.
Another traditional Christmas favourite with brand new animation from Tom Scott.
40 years old, The Snowman film is still a firm favourite at Christmas. Shown on the big screen with the wonderful music of Howard Blake played live by a professional orchestra.
Local soloists are auditioned around the country to sing “Walking in the Air”.
