Essential Orchestra

The Essential Orchestra is an 18-piece ensemble that features the full range of orchestral instruments.

Introducing orchestral music to young audiences through fun and interactive concert settings, our programmes incorporate elements of theatrical presentation alongside the musical performances, creating multi-artform experiences.

Taking story-telling as an entry point, audiences are transported into new realms through dramatic music and dynamic theatrical sets, with the musicians taking on the roles of the main characters.  Meet Willy Wonka or mythical Scottish beasts, watch Peter capturing his wolf or even enter the world of sport with musical relay races and synchronised swimming – our Essential Orchestra takes the audience on a musical journey everywhere and anywhere.
