The Mozart Symphony Orchestra are making their annual visit to Bristol for a special one-day performance of the timeless classic, The Snowman, at Bristol Beacon.


The Snowman is an animated christmas classic: the heartwarming story of a boy and his snowman coming to life, famous for its soul-touching soundtrack – with the beautiful ‘Walking in the Air” at its heart. Now, that soundtrack will be brought to life in stunning clarity as the Mozart Symphony Orchestra fills the air with its beautiful melodies.


For one day only, on Sat 21 December at The Bristol Beacon, audiences will have the chance to experience the much-beloved film on the big screen, accompanied live by the enchanting sounds of a talented and professional symphony orchestra.



Adding to the magic of the evening, 15-year-old Alice Mackenzie will take centre stage to perform the iconic aria made famous by Aled Jones: 'Walking in the Air'. With her precocious voice soaring above the orchestra, prepare to be transported to a world of wonder and imagination.


But the excitement doesn't stop there! Stay tuned for more announcements of family-friendly music that will be featured during the concert. From festive favourites to enchanting tunes that will delight audiences of all ages, there's bound to be something for everyone to enjoy, so do keep an eye out.



Forget about the traditional pantomimes – this concert is the perfect antidote to the winter blues and a wonderful Christmas treat for the whole family. So gather your loved ones, grab your tickets, and get ready to experience the magic of The Snowman like never before. It's an event you certainly won't want to miss!
