Children conducting Jurassic World
March of the Lions GSO full orchestra
Marcel Zidani and Chuen-An Chern playing Hermiones on piano with GSO
Jacob Barns plays The Swan
GSO’s Gloucester Guildhall children’s concert was another resounding success under the baton of our amazing musical director Glyn Oxley.
Soloists Marcel Zidani and Chuen-An Chern (pianists), Gordon Bailey (double bass) and Jacob Barns (cello) were sensational and our narrator Richard Atkins, from BBC Radio Gloucestershire, was extremely entertaining.
NB Our next children’s concert is at Cheltenham Town Hall on Sunday December 18th at 3pm. Don’t miss it!
Try the hands-on approach like Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra conductor Glyn Oxley – when he visited Elmbridge school to promote our free children’s concert at Gloucester Guildhall on Saturday (June 18) from 3-5pm!
You can have a go at conducting the orchestra who will be playing favourites like Jurassic World and Pirates of the Caribbean and you can keep the beat with percussion – as well as sit with the players.
BBC Radio Gloucestershire’s Richard Atkins will be narrating the story of naughty boy Tom Sawyer in a Johnny Dankworth composition and there’ll be some fantastic piano playing – and other sounds – in The Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens. Bring an animal mask or a pirate’s outfit!
