The Snowman
Vantaan Pops Orchestra conducted by Nick Davies - Kulttuuritalo Martinus


Program Info:
Howard Blake - The Snowman

The beloved, touching story about the friendship of a snowman and a little boy and the adventure of Christmas night, now accompanied by a symphony orchestra at Kulttuuritalo Martinus and Musiikkitalo.

The Snowman is a delightful animated film based on the children's book of the same name by the British Raymon Briggs. It premiered in 1982 and has been shown in the UK every Christmas since. In our country too, this warm-hearted film has been on TV for more than 30 years, always on Christmas Eve. Watching it has become an important part of many Finns' Christmas traditions. Like the Snowman book, the film is also devoid of dialogue. Its driving force is the enchanting illustration and the classic theme song Walking in the Air, composed by Howard Blake.

The movie experience rises to a new level when live music surrounds the viewer. The memory of this concert will remain in the mind all Christmas.

In addition, the concert will feature wonderful Christmas music from another wonderful Christmas night story, the Nutcracker ballet composed by Tchaikovsky. The concert is conducted by Nick Davies.
