Family favourite Swan Lake will bring the festive season into focus as talented young dancers from Gloucester-based Mandy Godding Theatre Arts perform with Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra during this musical celebration of Christmas on Sunday 3rd December at 3pm in Cheltenham Town Hall.
More young performers from the Cheltenham Youth Choir and Gloucestershire Academy of Music’s Cello Ensemble will be playing and singing carols and festive music. While slightly more mature singers making up MidLife ChoirSis will perform ‘Deck The Halls’ under Rachel Bowen’s baton.
The concert will also feature the strange tale of a fictitious Army Officer created by courtiers to appease a Russian Tsar. The piece entitled Lieutenant Kije by Prokofiev, will see narrator and saxophonist Lydia Kenny juggle both roles with the orchestra.
Cheltenham composer Philip Lane’s Wassail Dances will complete a programme guaranteed to appeal to all ages.
