My son has had the chance to dabble in playing violin in school this year and has taken to it like a duck to water. We were able to pick him up a second hand, quarter size violin of his own, and I'm always getting little concerts at home.
We will be along on Sunday evening to catch the second concert in the Ulster Orchestra's Sci-fi Weekender.
It takes place this Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March in the Ulster Hall. Whether you want to see the film that started the whole genre or you want to come bang up to date with music from one of modern Sci-Fi’s biggest sagas, your Ulster Orchestra is looking forward to welcoming you! Tickets for the concert can be purchased at www.ulsterorchestra.com or by phoning the Ulster Hall Box Office on (028) 9033 4455.
Your conductor for both concerts will be Ernst van Tiel, whose most recent work on film was on the soundtrack for the multi-award-winning film, The Artist. No one better to sweep the Ulster Orchestra through brave new worlds, from dystopian alternate reality to a galaxy far, far away!
