Orchestral train

26th January 2001 at 00:00
Continuing its series of concerts for young children, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra extends an invitation to climb aboard at Jim Parker's Grand Central Station on Sunday February 11 at 3pm and take a voyage of discovery around each section of the symphony orchestra.

In a concert called "Kaleidescope" at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the orchestra will play excerpts from various works including Purcell's Abdelazar Suite, Jim Parker's Grand Central and it will end with Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. The hour-long performance will be presented by the RSNO's presenter Paul Rissman.

On Sunday March 10 at 3pm the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall again plays host to th RSNO and presenter Chris Jarvis. This time it is for a maritime adventure which includes extracts from James Horner's Titanc Suite and Rimsky-Korsakov's tale of Scheherazade.

For early birds there is entertainment in the foyer from 2.15pm and after each concert you are invited to meet the conductor, presenter and musicians. You can bring an instrument to every concert, anything from a home-made shaker to a Stradivarius. A practice sheet for each concert will be sent to you with your tickets. One adult goes free with every eight children's tickets sold which cost pound;4. There are family tickets for pound;24 (two adults two children).
