Heard about the BBC's Ten Pieces? Get creative with your child and fall in love with classical music!

Here at Children's Classic Concerts, we're thrilled to be a champion of the BBC's Ten Pieces initiative - a wonderful adventure dedicated to bringing some epic classical* music into the classroom and a whole load of fun too!

It's all around us, but the Ten Pieces film, recorded with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, digs a little deeper into this genre of music and explores the sights conjured up, as well as the sounds by each composer - imagination is key!

The film is perfect for primary age children and schools can request a free DVD copy whilst stocks last.

There are lots of fantastic resources that follow on from the film to help your child/school get hands-on and creative with music, so please visit the BBC Ten Pieces website for more details!

And if you like what you hear - make sure you and your family visit us at one of our upcoming concerts of the 2014-15 season (in either Glasgow or Edinburgh) where we'll be joining forces with the mighty Royal Scottish National Orchestra to bring you LIVE and exciting renditions of even more classical treats - plus one of the Ten Pieces. Come along to find out which one, it's a good'un!

*otherwise known as brain fizzing, mind whizzing amazing music!!

Check out the new Season 2014-15!

We're well underway with plans for our new season concerts! The Monsters' Ball promises to be a fun-filled post Hallowe'en family adventure (Sat 1st and Sun 2nd November) featuring some top tunes and some funky dance moves - Dads get ready to embarrass the kids! As usual there'll be a costume competition with fab prizes up for grabs thanks to our friends at A1 Toys, so get your thinking caps on and get designing!

Then we'll be celebrating Christmas early on Sat 6th and Sun 7th December with the ultimate Xmas party line up of rubbish jokes, carols and tinsel! Don't miss out on Deck the Halls with Owen & Olly (see what we did there?)!

Today we're starting to un-pack our new season leaflets so we can spread the word! Can't wait to grab hold of one? Well have a wee sneak preview here!

There's even matching nail polish for the occasion!!

Owen & Olly had a fab time at Festival 2014!

There was lots of laughter, joining in (hundreds of folk in the audience came together to create a seriously impressive human drum-kit!) and top tunes on Saturday 26th July as Owen & Olly got everyone All Drummed Up for Glasgow 2014! Check out the photos on Facebook!

Catch Owen & Olly Live at Kelvingrove Bandstand!

Out and about in Glasgow during the Games? Fancy soaking up the friendly atmosphere for FREE? Then why not come and see why our lovely lads Owen & Olly have been twice-voted the best music act at the Edinburgh Fringe and why our young All Drummed Up group reduced their audiences to tears and got everyone up standing at our Going for Gold concerts back in May!* Their latest show-stopper - All Drummed Up...for Glasgow 2014 kicks off at 3pm at the Kelvingrove Bandstand on Saturday 26th July as part of Festival 2014!

*If you missed them before, check out the video here!

Owen & Olly will be turning up the volume and drumming up a storm at the newly refurbished venue (in the West End of Glasgow - accessed via Kelvin Way where it meets University Avenue) and can't wait to bring you top tunes (hopefully a sunny afternoon!), lots of laughs and audience participation for the whole family to get involved in!

Their guest performers (CCC's All Drummed Up! group along with pre-junior students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) are set to play and sing in the Commonwealth-themed finale (an inspirational song called We Can Fly, written by our very own Olly Cox - forget Murs!) in medal-winning style.

So don't miss out! Come along and be "bowled"over...they'll be sure to knock it out of the park!!

We're involved in Festival 2014 and We Can Fly!

Our very own Olly Cox (forget Murs!) has written a wonderfully inspirational song called 'We Can Fly!' which featured in our Commonwealth-themed Celebration Concert, Going For Gold in Glasgow and Dundee back in May.

The great news is, there's another opportunity to hear it as part of the Kelvingrove Banstand Festival 2014 Programme! Make sure Saturday 26th July is in your diary!!

Owen & Olly will be joined by their percussion pals from CCC's after-school music project in Drumchapel, together with pre-junior students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland for another spine-tingling and tear-enducing performance. This will be the finale to another fantastic concert (called All Drummed Up...for Glasgow 2014) presented by percussion whizz-kids, Owen & Olly featuring well-known favourites and lots of audience participation!

For a wee taster or a reminder (particularly for those who are performing again!) Please click below for the lyrics and to download the track!
