MUSICAL MAGICAL BEASTS
A FREE ORCHESTRAL CONCERT IN YOUR CLASSROOM
Join our intrepid explorer and tracker of Musical Magical Beasts, Ruth Rosales on an extraordinary phantasmagorical orchestral safari with Bath Philharmonia, beamed directly into your classroom via the Grove Theatre in Dunstable.
Our journey into the depths and undergrowth of our musical landscape will discover beasts including trolls, fire monsters, faunes, dancing skeletons, and massive bumble bees. To find clues to the whereabouts of the next beast your class will solve musical puzzles and complete musical tasks. 40 minutes of interactive fun with an orchestra enjoyable for everyone that can be accessed at anytime.
Thanks to the generous support of the Grove Theatre in Dunstable and Central Bedfordshire Council, the aim of this project is to give all Primary School pupils in Central Bedfordshire access to a live orchestral concert. Whilst your classes can’t come at the moment to the Grove Theatre, the Grove Theatre will come to your classroom. We aim to present amazing orchestral pieces in an exciting friendly way.
