Live music is making some noise again as Bangkok crawls back to where it was before the pandemic.

After performing two weeks on Phuket, the well-known Siam Sinfonietta youth orchestra will perform crowd-pleasing classics Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Night on Bald Mountain, Rimsky Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee, and more Russian standbys are part of its From Russia with Love concert series.

It kicks off 7pm on Sunday at the Banyan Tree Hotel in the Sathon area.

Tickets are available online for THB1,000 per person, while couples or trios can get them for THB800. Tickets for groups of four or more are discounted to THB600 per person. 

Snacks will be available from Banyan Tree, and ticket holders will be given coupons for the hotel’s restaurants.

Somtow, 69, will also lead the group Feb. 7 at SF Cinema at CentralwOrld for the theatrical release of The Maestro: A Symphony of Terror, an upcoming film he wrote and produced that was directed by Friese-Greene Club owner Paul Spurrier.

Founded in 2010, Siam Sinfonietta is an award-winning youth orchestra and the performance will be helmed by founding maestro Somtow Sucharitkul and composer-conductor Trisdee na Patalung.
