An enchanting Christmas story meets the magic of live orchestral music

19 December 2021

Perth Symphony Orchestra has enchanted over 8000 people of all ages with its live performance of The Snowman, and this much-loved Christmas tradition returns to Perth on Sunday December 19th.

Through gorgeous animation and an incredible orchestral soundtrack, this heart-warming film tells the story of a young boy’s adventure with a snowman who comes to life on Christmas Eve. The young at heart will remember the now famous song, ‘Walking in the Air’, which Perth Symphony is excited to perform alongside superstar boy soprano, Jimmy Jurjevich.

“We brought 3 generations of our family and all loved it. [The show] brought me to tears with the childhood memories. Thank you, it was amazing!” – Patron, The Snowman 2019

Hosted by Scotch College and presented by the wonderful Libby Hammer, this delightfully engaging show not only brings the spirit of Christmas to life, but it also introduces kids to the magic of a live orchestra in a way that’s fun, relevant, and meaningful. After meeting all the different instruments of the orchestra and joining Perth Symphony on a musical adventure to the North Pole, this fun family show concludes with a Christmas sing-a-long and a visit from a very busy man in a red suit.

 At once captivating and nostalgic, The Snowman brings the whole family together for a memorable experience in the lead up to Christmas. Early bookings are highly recommended because there are only two shows and The Snowman sells out every year! Individual and family tickets are now available via Ticketmaster 

 “There is something incredibly special in taking time out from the crazy pre-Christmas rush to spend time with your entire family sharing a magical Christmas experience that reminds us what Christmas is truly about. I’m so proud that The Snowman has been many Perth children’s first experience of an orchestra in concert, and they are transfixed by the music and the story. I think every child should at some point have the chance to see this moving and beautiful film.” – Bourby Webster, Founder and CEO of Perth Symphony Orchestra
