Hello and a very warm welcome to Pictures at an Exhibition!

Term 1 runs from 9 September to 25 November 2020 and we hope that you will have a great time working online with five string players from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Each week you are invited to join in with their socially distanced rehearsal of new arrangements of Pictures at an Exhibition, created specially for this project by Katrina Gordon.

We will provide parts arranged for three different skill levels below, so you can choose what suits you best according to whether you are a beginner, a learner, or a more advanced musician. The videos and musical parts will remain on the website once published, so you can join in at any point (and keep practising those tricky sections!).

To sign up for weekly updates on this project via email, fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

Feeling Inspired?

We hope our resources inspire other creative responses such as art, poetry, writing, or even new compositions. Send your responses in for the chance to be featured on our website!

Our Gallery!

Really enjoying being part of this. The tuition is so clear and friendly and the background information, illuminating.

I’m sure generations of amateur musicians to come will thank you for this clear and straightforward approach, especially divided up into manageable chunks.


It gives me other people to play with (so good for keeping my intonation steady), and a different challenge every week.
