Glasgow Music Festival - Sunday 10th March 2019

The orchestra and choirs will be performing at the Glasgow Music Festival on Sunday 10th March 2019

The performances will take place in the Main Auditorium at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3NY
 Orchestra: 14:45
 Choirs: 15:55

We will be providing buses to transport all the children from Eastbank. The orchestra bus will leave at 13:30 followed by a second bus for the remaining choir members at 13:45.
Please note that we will be meeting in the playground, there will be no access to the school.

I would like to encourage as many children as possible to travel to the Concert Hall on the bus as this makes it easier to keep children together when we arrive. However, parents wishing to take their children directly to the Concert Hall should ensure that they arrive no later than 14:00 (orchestra) or 14:30 (choirs). We will be taking all our choir members into the auditorium so they (and the tutors) can hear our orchestra perform.

Please let your child know how they will be travelling as this information will be gathered during choir/orchestra rehearsals. We must know in advance so that the buses don’t wait for you.

The performances should be finished at approximately 17:00 and a bus will return to Eastbank at approximately 17:30. Alternatively, you may collect your child from the Concert Hall at the end of the performances.

Please ensure that you inform your child's group leader before leaving so that we know they are safe.

All children must be smartly dressed in school uniform consisting of SHIRT, TIE, TROUSERS/SKIRT, SCHOOL SHOES. Jumpers/Sweatshirts must be removed while performing.
Please AVOID the following: (this list is not exhaustive!!!) trainers, brightly coloured socks/tights, elaborate hair ornaments/jewellery, etc.

Orchestra: ensure you have your instrument and spare strings/reeds
Children may bring a small drink/snack and a book or QUIET toy for any waiting times. Any expensive items are brought at your own risk.

Parents and friends are very welcome to come along and watch the performances. The Music Festival will charge for entry tickets to the hall.

We look forward to an enjoyable and successful afternoon.
