The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra take up a week-long residency in and around Campbeltown.
In the coming weeks local school pupils from Campbeltown Grammar School will be working with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in collaboration with Templar Arts and Leisure Centre, Tarbert (talc.) to create animations and posters for the residency, using a musical theme to explore their experiences of living in Campbeltown.
The BBC SSO’s residency comprises community events plus school workshops in Campbeltown and the surrounding area, including on Gigha. The week concludes with a public orchestral concert in Campbeltown’s Victoria Hall on Thursday 4 October. On Saturday 29 September there will be a special community event for early years and families called Tunes for Tots at Campbeltown Town Hall. The morning sessions include an opportunity for families with babies and toddlers to hear the different instruments that make up the orchestra, plus a chance to explore music from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition through an interactive jam and dot painting – also with one of talc.’s artists
