The new series of Children's Classic Concerts will involve more children than ever this year.
Thanks to sponsorship from the insurance company Standard Life, family audiences at the three concerts at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh, on October 7, November 11 and March 10, will be joined by school parties from Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife. This means 1,500 children can join in the fun-filled programme devised by conductor and artistic director Christopher Bell.
"Top of the Pops" features a top 10 of favourite tunes as voted by Classic Concerts audiences; "Top Scores" is for sports fans, presented by percussionist Alasdair Malloy; and "Animal Magic" features poet Roger McGough narrating his version of Saint-Sa ns's Carnival of the Animals.
