GCO winter 2019: The Snowman
Join the Glasgow Chamber Orchestra for an evening of lighter music particularly suitable for a younger audience in Sherbrooke Mosspark Church to get you in the festive mood! A short suite of "Child's Games" by Bizet takes into the music of fairytales, with Rossini's Overture to Cinderella (La Cenerentola), Ravel's Mother Goose Suite (portraying stories of Sleeping Beauties, Tom Thumb and Beauty and the Beast) and Howard Blake's evocative The Snowman, narrated by BBC Scotland's Kenneth Macdonald and talented young singers from Jordanhill Primary School. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin...
