Join the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the music-loving cat and dog duo Stan and Mabel for a fun-packed session of music and storytelling for your school. But watch out for a whole carnival of animals as they escape from the School for Wild and Dangerous Animals in search of a safe place to call their home!

The concert is based on a brand-new illustrated story by Jason Chapman and original music by children’s composer Paul Rissmann. Narrated by children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis.
