From time to time, everyone can benefit from an emotional and mental trip to a world of fantasy and magic. Inspired by the classic “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll, this concert creates a sense of wonder and joy in the audience. Let go of the here and now and get carried away in a ‘frabjous’ experience guaranteed to reset the senses.
