Christmas Family Concerts with James Mayhew and de Havilland Philharmonic Orchestra

Join the University of Hertfordshire’s resident de Havilland Philharmonic Orchestra, and award-winning children’s illustrator and author James Mayhew for a wonderful Christmas concert for the whole family – Sounds of the Sea.

Hosted by UH Arts + Culture, the Orchestra will be playing fabulous sea-themed favourites by MendelssohnDebussyWagner and Rimsky-Korsakov, while Mayhew paints his illustrations live on stage, in perfect synchronicity with the music – his paintings projected onto a big screen for all to enjoy.

Come and be swept away in this swashbuckling concert! The tales of ghostly pirates, sunken cities, minstrels, and mermaids are guaranteed to enchant and delight.

This is a Double Bill, so there will be two 60-minute concerts taking place on Sunday 26 November: at 14:00 and at 16:00 in the 450-seater Weston Auditorium on the de Havilland campus at the University of Hertfordshire (AL10 9EU).
