Presented by AHG

19 December 2015

The 4pm session has completely sold out of presale tickets – we are over the moon! There will be limited door sales available (cash only) for both sessions (it would help us immensely if you brought exact change).
Adult door sales are $40 and children (1yr – 14yrs) are $25.


Perth Symphony brings the magic of Christmas alive with their performance of The Snowman. This beautiful Academy Award-nominated film, based on Raymond Briggs’ famous book, depicts the story of the adventures of a young boy who builds a Snowman on the night before Christmas.
The orchestral score, by Howard Blake, will be performed live in concert by Perth Symphony Orchestra. The soundtrack includes the song ‘Walking in the Air’ made famous by Aled Jones – and will be performed by the winner of Perth Symphony’s ‘Search for a Star’ competition.


This story is a well known Christmas classic, with the original book selling over 8.5 million copies worldwide.

The concert will include a delightful introduction to the orchestra – hosted by Chief Conductor – Jessica Gethin, and followed by some Christmas surprises!

We invite you to bring an afternoon picnic to the grassy grounds of Scotch College before joining us in the Dickinson Centre, which will be transformed into a winter wonderland.
