...SEASON! Our Halloween and Christmas concerts are just around the corner!
There’s a bit of a chill in the air now (only a slight departure from ‘Summer’!) so here at CCC we’re really looking forward to Halloween and of course, Christmas! It’s officially the start of our new season with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, which is set to be bigger and better than ever before! Here are just a few things we’re getting excited about:
Our lovely lads Owen & Olly are back (in the country after a busy time abroad) to help kick-start your trick or treating fun with ‘Magic and Monsters’ on Saturday 31st October (actual Halloween, so no excuse!) at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and on Sunday 1st November at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh.
We're working once again with the extremely talented RSNO Junior Chorus (Halloween) and National Youth Choir of Scotland (Christmas) and they've got some cracking songs to share with you! There are some well-known favourites in both the Halloween and Christmas concert programmes as well as some excellent gags and silliness from the lads, so get ready for some teasers soon!
You can expect another amazing COSTUME COMPETITION with a phenomenal TROLLEY DASH prize (to the tune of £250!) thanks to our lovely pals at A1 Toys. For the lucky winner, Christmas will definitely come early!
We’re thrilled to announce right now, that one of the highlights of the Magic and Monsters concerts will be Misterstourworm, a narrated children’s symphony by the talented composer and long-time friend of CCC, Savourna Stevenson! It’s a myth set in the Western Isles featuring a brave young man called Coran, who is determined to rid his land of the vicious sea monster, Miserstourworm. The piece will be narrated by the brilliant James Mackenzie - many mums and dads will remember him as the immortal warlord ‘Raven’ on CBBC!
