    We'll visit a magical toyshop on Sunday with music by Respighi and Rossini, and we'll hear music written for such magical films such as Spirited Away and Ponyo on the Cliff.

    Sunday August 9th
    Ferde Grofe worked as a milkman, a truck driver and an elevator operator before becoming a piano player in a bar and eventually a composer. His first big success was arranging Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue for orchestra, but on Sunday we'll hear part of his Grand Canyon Suite, which includes music written for a thunderstorm. We’ll also hear music played by some of the percussion instruments, including a xylophone.

    Sunday August 16th
    It took Scheherazade 1,001 nights to tell The Tales of the Arabian Nights to King Sharayar, keeping him entertained so he wouldn't chop off her head! The stories inspired imaginative music too, and today we'll hear music written for the story of Aladdin by Nielsen and Sinbad by Rimsky-Korsakov. We'll also spend some time getting to know the different instruments and sections of the orchestra a little better, with Benjamin Britten's Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra read by Sean Connery.
