Wagner: Ride of the ValkyriesVaughan Williams: The Lark AscendingBeethoven: 1st Movement of Symphony No 5John Williams: Jurassic ParkProkofiev: Peter and the Wolf Bernstein: Mambo from West Side StoryJohn Williams: Main Theme from Star WarsGuest Conductor : Mark BigginsNarrator : Katy Ashworth (as seen on CBeebies)The FSO's Family Concert is designed to appeal to music lovers of all ages and includes some varied and popular works, including film themes and pieces from the BBCs “Ten Pieces” Project.  Budding instrumentalists should enjoy the way that different instruments play the different characters in Peter and the Wolf, and we are particularly excited to welcome local actress, Katy Ashworth (as seen on CBeebies), to narrate this timeless classic. Well known for presenting the TV programme 'I Can Cook', Katy featured in the inaugural CBeebies prom at the Royal Albert Hall in 2014. Our very own leader Hollie Chapman will take the solo violin role in Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending (eight times voted the nation’s favourite in the Classic FM Hall of Fame) and if percussion is more your thing, the Mambo from West Side Story won’t disappoint, needing several players to swap between everything from a cow bell to a whistle!The concert will take place at 14:30 so make sure you make a note of the start time. If you are interested in learning more about some of the pieces have a look on the BBC Ten Pieces website, where you’ll find videos, MP3s and teaching resources (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04pc0j8).The concert is aimed at Key Stage 2-3 children but children of all ages are of course welcome if they enjoying listening to music!
