...sound, action

20th April 2001 at 01:00
The Royal Scottish National Orchestra ScottishPower Schools Proms returns this year with Unreal, which is described as "an action packed musical adventure" featuring Saint-Saens' "Danse Macabre" and Prokofiev's "Lieutenant Kije" among others.

Unreal will be launched with a series of in-service training sessions for specialist and non-specialist teachers. Paul Rissmann, the RSNO's education officer, will present a tailor-made music project for primary school children inspired by the adventures of Prokofiev's "Lieutenant Kije". Armed with a project pack, schools can then begin exploring Prokfiev's music and inventing their own. And prior to the proms, RSNO musicians will visit schools to help classes with their work.

The hour-long concerts will happen at Edinburgh's Usher Hall on June 7, Aberdeen's Music Hall on June 13, Dundee's Caird Hall on June 14, all at 1pm, and at Glasgow's Armadillo on June 25 at 10.30am and 1.15pm.

For information on the schools programme contact Lyn Underwood on 0141 225 3552. For information about the rest of the proms programme, including the Kids Proms, contact David Young, RSNO marketing, tel 0141 225 2557, or see www.rsno.org.uk
