U18 Obsession


The internationally-renowned Scottish Chamber Orchestra invites primary and secondary school pupils to experience the thrill of a live orchestra and chorus in their 2019/20 Concert Season finale, free of charge!

Before live performances of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique and Faure’s Requiem with SCO Chorus in Edinburgh and Glasgow, join SCO Clarinet William Stafford and storyteller Clare Hewitt as they conjure up Berlioz’s dark world of witchcraft and obsession.

This Storytelling Insight provides a fantastic introduction to the stories behind the music that the Orchestra will perform later that evening.


Thursday 9 May 2019 – Usher Hall, Edinburgh (Lothian Rd, Edinburgh EH1 2EA)

Friday 10 May 2019 – Glasgow City Halls (87-101 Albion St, Glasgow G1 1NQ)

Storytelling Insights take place from 6.30pm to 7.00pm. The concert begins at 7.30pm and finishes at approximately 9.30pm.

Faure’s Requiem with SCO Chorus is performed before the interval, followed by Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, the music which the storytelling insight will explore.
