Winter: the most enchanting of seasons...
As the nights draw in and the days get colder, a rolling snowball of four wondrous musicians and some light fingered animation will explore the magic and mystery of all things snowy with favourite memories of winter and some new ones too.
With a dynamic blend of original music, improvisation and audience interaction, this brand new festive music show by composer Brian Irvine has been commissioned and specially created for children, their schools and families.
Featuring: Matthew Bourne (piano), Matthew Sharp (voice & cello), Alex Petcu (percussion), Paul Roe (clarinet), Emma Fisher (visuals). Music by Brian Irvine, lyrics by John McIlduff and animations by Matthew Robins.
The national tour of A Most Peculiar Wintry Thing is funded by an Arts Council Touring Award and is the first production from a new strategic partnership between Music Network and The Ark.

"Some of the most exhilarating and imaginative music you'll ever hope to hear - musical play in the highest sense: exuberant, spontaneous and irresistibly alive"- Washington Post on Brian Irvine
