Attending my first concert with classical music.  A school trip one Saturday morning; part of Sir Malcolm Sargent's programme for children.  Carnival of Animals was the piece I remember but not who the narrator was.  For an 8 year old quite an over-whelming experience.  Travelling to London from mid Kent on a steamtrain.  The size of the hall, which seemed full.  The way the instruments "spoke".  The piece remain a perennial favourite, as was Sir Malcolm, as I grew up and came to appreciate a wider range of classical music.
