Norfolk Symphony Orchestra will perform a summer concert on June 26 in one of King's Lynn's most historic buildings, St Nicholas' Chapel.
Conducted by Philip Hesketh (pictured). the programme will include Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings and excerpts from the Nutcracker.
Favourites such as The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Waltz of the Flowers and Les Mirlitons are set to be performed.
The event is also the Norfolk Symphony Orchestra's annual 'Friends Concert'.
A spokesman said: 'This is the orchestra's way of thanking all those who are members of the 'Friends of the Orchestra' scheme for supporting us through the year.
'It is a more light-hearted concert with plenty of time to catch up with familiar faces, players and audience.'
Mr Hesketh played cello in the Sadler Wells Royal Ballet in his days as a professional musician. He is also currently Music Director of the London Children's Ballet.
