We share our blue planet with thousands of species of diverse creatures – and now for one morning, we will share our stage with them as well. In this salute to the natural world, our musicians will bring to life a pantheon of beasts, including Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous bumblebee! From the powerful to the petite, the furry to the feathered – this will be a wild and woolly morning. Guaranteed fun for the whole family!
