Conductor Steve Bingham

Members of the Norfolk Symphony Orchestra will take to the stage for their first concert of the new season.

King’s Lynn Corn Exchange is set to be turned into a world of wizards, fairies and magic. 

 Before the concert on Sunday, magician David Fung will amaze the audience with close-up magic in the foyer. 

The first half of the concert will see the orchestra take the audience on a journey from Mussorgsky’s mountainside full of witches to Mendelssohn’s wood full of elves.  

There will be more magic from Mr Fung in the interval and the second half will start with The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. 

Orchestra leader Paula Muldoon will play the violin solo in Danse Macabre, summoning skeletons from their graves.  

The musicians will finish the concert with Harry Potter, an orchestral suite containing John Williams’ music from the films.

There will be 100 free tickets for under 18s and  anyone interested is asked to call the box office on 01553 764864 for details.

Maestro Steve Bingham will take up the baton and get the concert under way at 3.30pm.  Young people are invited to dress-up in fancy dress costumes.
