Newcastle Youth Orchestra – a family concert
The Newcastle Youth Orchestra, conducted by Mr Ian Cook, will present a Family Concert in the stunning Sisters’ Chapel, with two classic pieces for orchestra and narrator – Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals.
As the young musicians play, Newcastle playwright Carl Caulfield will take you through the fun adventures of young Peter when he meets the wolf, accompanied by some dancers from the National College Of Dance.
Ghillian Sullivan will narrate the humorous parade of ‘Carnival of the Animals’ alongside the orchestra…
A program for young and old!
