A family adventure through the whizzpopping stories of Roald Dahl

Once upon a time…four of the most magical words in the English language! But what happens when you add music to a story? We’ll be finding out when some of Roald Dahl’s most famous texts are set to music. Join the West of England Youth Orchestra for a captivating musical celebration of beloved author Roald Dahl’s work. We’ll hear Paul Patterson’s fantastic setting of Little Red Riding Hood, music from Tim Minchin’s record-breaking West End musical Matilda, plus plenty more surprises – conducted  by WEYO favourite Karen Ní Bhroin. Tom Redmond (the brother of WEYO’s regular conductor, Tim) will be narrating Little Red Riding Hood and Crockywood. There are two performances, a 3pm and a 6pm. This concert is fun for the whole family!

Programme includes: 

Songs from Tim Michin’s record-breaking West End musical, Mathilda

Composer Paul Patterson’s setting of Little Red Riding Hood

A musical setting of Roald Dahl’s Crockywock poem

Music from a recent Moomins film

Excerpts from classical pieces that demonstrate storytelling including Grieg’s Hall of the Mountain King and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture.
