The Gruffalo and The Snowman
Mozart Symphony Orchestra conducted by Philip Mackenzie - Cadogan Hall

Program Info:
Mozart Symphony Orchestra
Philip Mackenzie, conductor
Alice Mackenzie, soprano
Mark Webber, narrator

The Cadogan Hall is delighted to announce the world premiere of a new adaptation of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. This magical book has been re-worked into an enchanting piece for narrator and orchestra by Philip Mackenzie. In the manner of Peter and the Wolf, each character in the tale is represented by a different instrument of the orchestra – any guesses what the Gruffalo will be played by?

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without The Snowman and what better way to see this iconic film than with a live symphony orchestra providing the soundtrack and guest soloist, eleven-year-old Alice Mackenzie singing ‘Walking in the Air’?

Louis Mander and Mark Webber have teamed up to create a hilarious brand new work based on Kipling’s Just So Stories as a way of introducing children to the sounds of an orchestra.

The perfect Christmas treat for all the family!

Howard Blake - The Snowman (film showing on the large screen with orchestral accompaniment)
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler - The Gruffalo
Louis Mander and Mark Webber - Just So Stories (inspired by Rudyard Kipling)
