Hold on to your seats and let St Cecilia Orchestra take you on a magical, musical journey in a family-friendly programme filled with fun (and a few vacuum cleaners)!
St Cecilia is joined by local children’s choirs in Gary Carpenter’s quirky setting of four Robert Louis Stevenson poems, The Lamplighter, John Forsyth narrates Richard Shephard’s retelling of The Musicians of Bremen (a Brothers Grimm fairytale) and three vacuum cleaners and a floor polisher take to the floor in Malcolm Arnold’s Grand, Grand Festival Overture. Dukas’ magical masterpiece, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, well-known from Disney’s Fantasia, and John Adams’ exciting whirlwind of a piece, Short Ride in a Fast Machine, complete the programme.
Tickets available from Ticketsource (www.ticketsource.co.uk/st-cecilia), from Harrogate Theatre and the Little Ripon Bookshop and on the door.
