Britten and Beyond


We hosted a very special 100th birthday celebration honouring the British composer who gave the world the best-ever introduction to the symphony orchestra. As well as the magnificent Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, with a new narration by Owen and Olly, there were party pieces by the great man and his friends, singing from the RSNO Junior Chorus and dancing in the aisles for the whole audience.

And yes, there was cake!

Kindly supported by Glasgow City Council and La Bonne Auberge.


  • Presented by Owen Gunnell and Oliver Cox
  • Conducted by Christian Kluxen


The RSNO and The RSNO Junior Chorus
