About this Concert

Presented by members of The English Symphony Orchestra, Kenneth Woods, Zoë Beyers and Joely Koos let their hair down as they return to the Royal Porcelain Works for another informal, entertaining and engaging evening mixing musical performance and storytelling. The programme opens closes with two more of David Yang's hilarious Klezmer pieces chronicling the hapless lives of the citizens of Chelm. Two coming of age stories, one playful and funny (Ferdinand the Bull), one personal and poignant (The Ugly Duckling), make up the balance of the first half of the evening. After the interval, we travel to ancient Indonesia for a colourful story about a how a young woman's bravery and compassion saved a nation. Family friendly, but aimed at all ages.
