A composer has been found dead, and all the musicians are suspects… Who do you think the culprit might be? As the case is investigated, enjoy a quirky introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, through the words of favourite children’s writer Lemony Snicket – author of A Series of Unfortunate Events – and music of Nathaniel Stookey.

Before this exciting UK premiere CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge will take you on a musical whistle-stop tour of the Orchestra, meeting the musicians who might be guilty of this terrible crime. You’ll be treated to some of the music that inspired The Composer is Dead and also hear music by some composers who are very much alive, including favourite film composer John Williams.

FREE craft workshops and music in the foyers from 1.30pm. Why not come dressed up in a music-inspired costume?
