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

Pictures at an Exhibition is a project for all to enjoy, no matter your age, level or location. The project took place from September 2020 - March 2021, however, all the resources remain on our website once published, so you can join in at any point and keep practising those tricky sections!

Both terms feature rehearsal and instructional videos from SCO musicians and our partners On each page you will find a set of videos and newly arranged parts for three different skill levels, created especially for this project by Katrina Gordon. Choose what suits you best according to whether you are a beginner, a learner, or a more advanced musician. Once you've worked your way through the weeks, try joining in with the play through video featuring fifteen SCO musicians and conductor Susie Dingle.

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!

I hadn't expected to be inspired in the way you have been appealing for, but have surprised myself.

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.
