It’s a kind of magic for symphony orchestra as wizards and fairies feature in themed-concert




The Norfolk Symphony Orchestra welcomes you to its first concert of the 2019-20 season on Sunday, as it transforms the King’s Lynn Alive Corn Exchange into a world of wizards, fairies and magic!

Before the concert, magician David Fung will amaze you with close-up magic in the foyer.

For the first half, the orchestra will take you on a journey from Mussorgsky’s mountainside full of witches to Mendelssohn’s wood full of elves.

More magic from David Fung in the interval, then the second half starts with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and a naughty mouse in trouble with broomsticks!

Orchestra leader Paula Muldoon plays the violin solo in Danse Macabre, summoning skeletons from their graves.

The programme finishes with Harry Potter, an orchestral suite containing John Williams’ exciting music from the films.
