Musical Sorcery: Berlioz and Dukas | Classroom Resource Pack
Hello and thank you for booking to bring your class to the 2019 Virgin Money Schools Concert on Monday 26 August! We are looking forward to welcoming you to Princes Street Gardens for a magical musical experience. This year’s theme is musical sorcery and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra will play three movements from Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique as well as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Paul Dukas. The Orchestra will be conducted by Marta Gardolińska in a performance lasting 45 minutes. Rachel Leach will present the concert and will lead the audience of around two thousand Primary 7 pupils through the music.
This resource pack has been created as a central source of information for you and your pupils. We hope that you might use some elements of it in the classroom to prepare for the performance, and to continue exploring some of the themes afterwards.
With thanks to Rachel Leach and the London Symphony Orchestra for sharing resources.
