Booking has now opened for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra Family Fun Day at the WHALE Arts Centre. The event suitable for 4-9 year olds will take place on Saturday 21 October 2017.
The day is part of a 3 year cross-community residency in Wester Hailes, in which children, young people and adults will have opportunities to work alongside professional musicians and to explore their creative potentials and perform and record new music.
The theme for the family day is inspired by The Snail and the Whale children’s book by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler. There are 2 sessions 10-12 or 1-3 pm, each with a performance, music workshops, instruments you can try out and sea themed arts and crafts. Children must be accompanied by an adult. You can book online via eventbrite or by phoning WHALE Arts on 0131 458 3267.
