Our brand new mini-orchestra are set for a party to celebrate Roald Dahl!
We’re so excited to see and hear some amazing musicians come together to form a brand-new orchestra for CCC! Performances will be small-scale (1 player for most instruments) but high-impact, as each member gets involved with the action (and the dressing up – in the first few concerts, see how many of your favourite Roald Dahl characters you can spot on stage)! We can’t wait!
Owen & Olly are gearing up to host the premiere performances (i.e. parties) on Sunday 24th April – Macrobert Arts Centre and Saturday 21st May – Perth Concert Hall, celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday year! Amongst their usual antics, they’ll be narrating the highlight of the programme, The Three Little Pigs (featured in Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes), with music by Paul Patterson. There’ll be plenty of other party pieces too, showcasing some of Dahl’s best-loved stories – it’ll be a gobstopper of a concert!
After the performances, don’t miss out on the chance to meet the champion musicians and ask questions about how they play their marvellous melodies – book your golden tickets here!
