Primary School Concerts

Every year the RSNO perform a series of presenter-led concerts for primary school aged pupils across Scotland, featuring the full Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

RSNO Primary School concerts aim to support the Curriculum for Excellence, enriching children’s understanding of music whilst providing the perfect introduction to the orchestra. The concert performances include interactive elements such as visual projections and integrated sound and lighting.

The new programme of RSNO Primary School concerts entitled RSNO 360 LIVE was launched in Glasgow in 2016, and in addition, toured to Edinburgh in 2017, Dundee in 2018 and includes Aberdeen in the 2019:20 Season.

Each school attending the RSNO Primary School concerts will receive:

  • An in-school workshop delivered by RSNO musicians
  • Access to a Teacher training session
  • Teachers resource pack linking to the themes and concepts explored in the concert programme.

Dates for Primary Schools Concerts will be announced soon.

Thank you so much for such a terrific concert yesterday morning. Everything about the total experience was cleverly planned and meticulously organised to make the occasion a wonderful learning experience for your young audience. I really can’t thank you enough for enabling our children to have such a positive experience.
