An Adventurer’s Guide to the Orchestra

The big, bold and fun concert showcased the sheer power of a large-scale orchestra performing some of the greatest musical giants – John Adams, Leonard Bernstein and John Williams to name a few. Featuring the Star Wars theme and excerpts from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, the concert was enjoyed by all.
