Glasgow City Halls offer a range of new "join us" learning and participatory courses. Scrapers Tooters on May 20 and 21 is an opportunity for amateur orchestral musicians to get together for a relaxed weekend of music-making.

Participants rehearse as part of a full orchestra with professional conductor Jason Lai and receive sectional coaching from Scottish Chamber Orchestra musicians. Some experience is required but previous knowledge of the music is not.

Early booking is advisable. Call Lucy Perry on 0131 478 8353 or email
