Norfolk Symphony Orchestra is to host a summer afternoon concert, featuring Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and excerpts from his Nutcracker Ballet.
The concert, which is to be held on Sunday June 26 at St Nicholas’ Chapel in King’s Lynn, will also include favourites such as The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Waltz of the Flowers and Les Mirlitons.
Organisers said: “As our annual Friends Concert, this is the orchestra’s way of thanking all those who are members of the Friends of the orchestra scheme for supporting us through the year.
“It is a more light-hearted concert with plenty of time to catch up with familiar faces, players and audience. Conductor Phillip Hesketh, who played cello in the Sadler Wells Royal Ballet in his professional playing career and is currently Music Director of the London Children’s Ballet will be guiding you through the music and telling the story of the Nutcracker Ballet and no doubt adding some anecdotes from his days in the orchestra pit.”
Tickets are £5 to members of the public and free to ‘Friends’ of the NSO and under 18’s.
