Shiver me timbers! Record demand for St Albans Symphony Orchestra’s Pirates Aaarh-hoy! concerts for children on the afternoon of Sunday November 18th means they are both sold out.
The fancy dress concerts in St Saviour’s Church this year feature family-friendly classics that include Wagner’s Flying Dutchman Overture and the famous Sailor’s Hornpipe played at the Last Night of the Proms. A salty yarn about the hunt for lost pirate treasure will be narrated by Annette Holland and David Bevan from St Albans-based Best Theatre Arts and each concert includes an opportunity for children to try out the musician’s instruments.,
SASO’s Chair, David Utting, said: “We are delighted that these concerts introducing children to the excitement of live orchestral music are so incredibly popular, but nevertheless apologise to any parents and children who were still hoping to get seats.”
