Gaspard‘s Foxtrot: FREE Concert for Primary Schools

 

The RSNO National Schools Concert Programme introduces thousands of primary school pupils across Scotland to classical music each year through a series of live concerts, in-school workshops, accompanying learning resources, and CPD sessions for teachers.

 

This year, the programme is going digital!

 

Join us for Gaspard’s Foxtrot – a digital concert experience featuring the popular children’s book character, Gaspard the Fox. Narrated by author Zeb Soanes with animation from Visible Fictions and presented by animateur Lucy Drever, the orchestral tale follows Gaspard accidentally boarding a bus to London and exploring the sights, sounds and smells of the city before trying to find his way home.

 

Alongside the digital concert, you will have access to digital resources, an online workshop with Lucy Drever, and teacher CPD.

 

The digital programme is free of charge to all participating schools. Please note this is only available for schools based in Scotland. By registering for a free ticket, you will gain access to the following online content:

 

The National Schools Concert Programme is developed in line with the Curriculum for Excellence and aims to benefit pupils and teachers by:

 

  • Introducing children to classical music in their formative years, nurturing their creativity and well-being.
  • Exploring relevant themes and cross-curricular links.
  • Equipping teachers with the skills and increased knowledge that they need to confidently deliver music in the classroom.
  • Ensuring that pupils can benefit from the positive holistic impact on learning and engagement that musical education can bring.
