Join us for Sound Space!

We know 2020 has been a tough time for young people and teachers alike, so we’re delighted to be offering special free online lunchtime concerts to all schoolchildren in Scotland, with a selection of music to both calm and uplift us in the middle of our day.

As well as giving young people the chance to hear some of Scotland’s best musicians perform live, just for them, the concert will also have a well-being focus. In these 30-minute performances, we’ll pack in music to energise, music to help you reduce stress or anxiety, and music that covers a whole range of other emotions young people might be experiencing in these unusual times.

You don’t need to know anything about music to enjoy and benefit from tuning in to this performance. We’ll introduce all the musicians and music and a special guest presenter (to be announced) will ensure everyone feels welcome. You can watch as a whole school, or as a class or individual; it is entirely flexible and open to everyone.

All performances will have BSL interpretation.

Dates and times

First performance: Friday 30 October

12:00* Primary Schools

12:40* Secondary Schools

Both performances will last 30 minutes.

*We realise lunchtimes vary across schools and the live stream will be arranged so you can go back to the start of the concert to watch from the beginning at any time that suits you throughout the following week. The times stated are the earliest time you can watch and when the stream will be ‘live’.

Technology and sign up

To register your school and be provided with the link for the performance please email Duncan Sutherland. To watch, all you will need is a room, and a computer with a screen and speakers appropriate for the number of pupils and staff watching. It is possible to screen the concert into multiple rooms if social distancing means room capacity is reduced.

The concert will be streamed live from Perth Concert Hall via a private link on YouTube so please make sure your firewall allows for viewing on this platform.
