    We'll hear Debussy's story of a doll and a toy soldier who fall in love, and we'll explore the musical alphabet with the WhistleBlast Quartet performing Ravel's Mother Goose Suite.

    Sunday November 30th
    ‘R' is for 'Rhythm' and we’ll hear why on Sunday, with part of the Bolero by Ravel and a waltz from Sleeping Beauty. We'll also hear the trumpet perform some very different styles of music - part of a Trumpet Concerto by Hummel and some jazzy Disney tunes performed by Louis Armstrong!

    Sunday December 7th
    On the first Sunday of Winter we'll listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons and hear music he wrote for some very chilly weather. We'll also hear part of Bizet's Carmen Suite performed by the WhistleBlast Quartet, as they play some very different-sounding notes for us.
