    Former Teletubby and Cbeebies favourite Pui Fan Lee will be taking apart the Orchestra of Opera North in How it Works, a fun, family-friendly concert at Huddersfield Town Hall on Sunday 23 October from 4pm.

    Each colour-coded section of the ensemble will take its turn under the microscope as Pui uses well-known pieces of music to give a unique insight into its workings, in part and as a whole. There will be a chance to find out how the Orchestra conjures up the Storm from Britten's Peter Grimes, with its huge waves of strings, brass and pounding percussion, and how it transforms itself into Villa Lobos' Little Train of Caipira, complete with chugging engine and woodwind whistle.

    Perfect for young and old alike, How it Works also includes one of the very best known works in classical music.The Town Hall's huge 1891 Father Willis Organ comes under the spotlight for the Maestoso from Saint-Saëns' Organ Symphony, which appears in the soundtracks of the Babe films.

    Before the concert, there will be a chance to get hands-on with a whole range of musical instruments in the Old Court Room, within the Town Hall building, from 3.15pm.

    Tickets cost just £12 (adults) and £6 (under 16s), and are available from Box Office on 01484225755, or online at https://www.operanorth.co.uk/productions/orchestra-of-opera-north-how-it-works-the-orchestra
