It wouldn't be the St Nicholas weekend without the annual performance of The Children's Charity Concert at the Auderghem Cultural Centre. An audio AND visual double bill this year - Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf and Raymond Briggs's The Snowman, a classic telling the adventures of a small boy whose snowman comes to life at midnight. Peter and his friends, a bird, the cat, the duck and his grandfather all have their own tune and the triumphal march at the end involves the entire orchestra.
Visual and still drawings keeps children of any age entertained.
Well known conductor, Dirk Boiy, will conduct his own orchestra, "The Boiy-Band", made of professional musicians from the Monnaie/ Munt Opera Orchestra. Mary Gow joins them as pianist. The narration in English is given by Ian Forrester, skilled lawyer and judge. He says " this is the most fun charity concert and a huge privilege to be on stage with such a good orchestra. Really exciting".
