MUSIC from Disney’s Fantasia will be performed by professional symphony orchestra Questa Musica in New Milton this September.

Questa representative Alex Hustler said: "We are delighted to be returning to New Milton with this concert. The audiences in the New Forest always give us such a warm welcome and take part in our concerts in such an enthusiastic manner, so we’re delighted to be coming back.

"Having brought an eight-foot dinosaur to conduct Jurassic Park a year ago, who knows what this concert might bring?! If people get in touch and tell us what they’d like our conductor to wear this time (do remember the outfits in the original film), we’ll see what we can do! We can’t promise a dancing hippo, but you never know…’

Music from the timeless Disney classic, include The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Night on a Bare Mountain, Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Nutcracker, Pines of Rome, Rite of Spring, Dance of the Hours and The Firebird, this concert will be our biggest in the New Forest this year.

Through this concert, Questa will be raising funds for The Isabel Baker Foundation, a charity based in Christchurch, who provide support to bereaved parents of children with cancer who experience financial difficulty in the months following their child’s death, as well as providing food vouchers to oncology parents and parents who have prolonged stays in hospital with their child during treatment.

Questa Musica perform twice a year in New Milton as part of their outreach programme to take music to places where full orchestras wouldn’t normally be able to go, as well as to raise funds for local charities. Their members include professionals from orchestras including the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Bournemouth Symphony, Hallé and others, alongside the best local professionals and semi-professionals. They have performed works from Mozart to Freddie Mercury and Queen and they have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities throughout Dorset and Hampshire over the last decade.

These concerts usually sell out, so book early to avoid disappointment.

n The next Questa concert after this will be at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth on December 13, Questa Sings Christmas with Kerry Ellis. Tickets for all concerts are available
