I love bringing my child; the space is beautiful and has a lovely atmosphere. It is brilliant that we have the chance to sing with a professional vocal artist. Coming to the sessions have given me more confidence to sing with my child at home.

12 - 17 Dec 2017
Touring 2 theatres
Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2017-18
Hugh Brunt, Conductor
John Savournin, Narrator — Leeds
Claire Pascoe — Huddersfield
Arguably the most cherished soundtrack to the Christmas season is the score to Raymond Brigg's The Snowman. This December the Orchestra of Opera North performs the music in all its heart-melting splendour to a live screening of the animation. Sure to captivate the imaginations of young and old alike, this is not only the perfect way to spend time with loved ones, but a wonderful introduction to the thrills, chills and power of a symphony orchestra performing live.
Before that, narrator John Savournin delights with the classic rags-to-riches tale of Cinderella with sensational music and illustrations to accompany the story.
Brunt’s conducting of every bar, from the opening buzzing bass line to the sudden consonant end assertive, was graceful, just like the music. Wonderful.

Opera North's Youth Ensembles from across the North come together to tell a story of love and loss through the seasons of the year based on traditional folk songs and tales.
The young singers from the Opera North Children’s Choruses in Leeds, Newcastle and Hull, will be joined by members from Opera North Young Voices and the Opera North Youth Chorus.
They will be accompanied by Cream Tees, a youth folk band formed in 2012 as part of the Music at the Heart of Teesdale project.
