Introduce wee ones to the magic of classical music with Yoyo & The Little Auk – a new Scottish adventure from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Visible Fictions, supported by Year of Stories 2022.

When a terrible storm hits a flock of birds flying thousands of miles across the ocean, one little auk lands with a plop on a clump of purple heather in Inverkithkin – a charming town smack bang in the middle of Scotland.

Yoyo & The Little Auk is the perfect introduction to orchestral music and storytelling for children aged 3-6. This interactive experience features a screening of a new animated film accompanied by a live orchestral performance and is around 45 minutes in length.

In addition to the live concert experience, digital learning resources are available for free at
