Insimul invites you to the traditional Christmas concert “The Snowman” – with a live orchestra! The Snowman is a British animated television film and symphonic poem based on Raymond Briggs’ picture book The Snowman from 1982. The music is written by Howard Blake, and has no words, except for in the central song of the story, “Walking in the Air”.

The film version of “The Snowman” is a Christmas classic around the world. The Oscar-nominated animated film is shown every Christmas Eve on British television. The author himself, a self-proclaimed Christmas skeptic, had never dreamed that the film would be so popular, as his real intention was to teach children about the mortality of all things.

“The Snowman” is about a boy who builds a snowman in the garden. One night he wakes up and discovers that the snowman is alive! They go on adventures together and become good friends. But can this relationship last, can the Snowman live forever?

We warmly welcome children, adults, animation and music lovers to this beautiful Christmas concert!

The concert is supported by Norsk kulturråd (The Norwegian Cultural Council).

Rune Johansen, conductor

40 minutes; without intermission.
