Enter into a new orchestral sound world!

Immerse (previously known as Masterworks) is SCO's flagship full-orchestra project that enables upper secondary school music pupils to experience the excitement of a live orchestra up close in concert, and to hone their listening, performing, and composing skills through video resources.

Immerse 2022 will feature Sound and Fury by Anna Clyne, and a new suite of short pieces by up-and-coming women composers currently taking part in the SCO's New Stories mentoring scheme with Anna. Introduced by Rachel Leach, the concert includes live projection of the orchestra on a large screen and features a young actor performing a Macbeth soliloquy during Sound and Fury.

Immerse is offered free to all schools.

ONLINE RESOURCES:

An existing set of Sound and Fury video resources will be republished on this page after the September concerts. Schools who were not able to attend the concerts can watch a full concert of Sound and Fury by SCO, and access a series of classroom video resources introduced by Rachel Leach. These include a listening guide, musical concepts explained, and a set of composition tasks including tips for teachers.

The resources support the Curriculum for Excellence and are ideal for pupils studying for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher.

CONCERTS:

Tuesday 20 September | Musselburgh Brunton Theatre
Wednesday 21 September | Troon Town Hall
Thursday 22 September | Dunfermline Easterbrook Hall

All concerts at 1pm - 2.15pm.
