Soloists from Aurora Orchestra

This hour-long concert will take you on a magical journey.  Six musicians from Aurora Orchestra and magician Neil Henry bring to life snowy scenes, twinkling stars, quacking ducks and floating swans, whilst throwing in a few surprises along the way!  The concert will explore each instrument and discover how they come together to tell stories.  Using beautiful chamber music by Arthur Bliss and Camille Saint-Saëns, the musicians will tell the story of The Ugly Duckling, with the help of  a little magic. There will also be opportunities for everyone to sing, move and perhaps even cast their own spells!
