As the title suggests, this concert has something for all ages with music ranging from a magnificent choral piece by Vaughan Williams to the lively Henry Wood Fantasia on British Sea Songs.


For both young and old, there is a performance of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf for orchestra and narrator. This a ‘symphonic fairy tale for children’ and one of the most frequently performed works in the entire classical repertoire.


There will also be a chance for audience participation, both vocal and percussive (!) and a great deal of fun.
