The Caird Hall
Dundee, United Kingdom
The SNJO presents new interpretations of two universally popular children’s classics in concerts that are sure to appeal to music lovers of all ages.
Tommy Smith’s jazz version of Peter and the Wolf will remain true to Prokofiev’s premise that particular instruments are allocated to each character and his wonderful melodies will be lovingly preserved whilst actor Tam Dean Burn will narrate new text specially adapted by former Makar Liz Lochhead.
Makoto Ozone's vivid re-imagining of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals for jazz instrumentation will delight young listeners and bring the composer’s animal cavalcade to life in ways that not even Saint-Saëns himself could possibly have imagined.
Concert at 7.30pm with free preconcert talk at 6.45pm FREE for all schoolchildren
