About Children’s Classic Concerts: Weird Science

CCC’s mad professor, Owen Gunnell, and a bewitching presenter from Glasgow Science Centre are on a hair-raising mission to prove they’ve got great chemistry with the audience!

Join them on a musical tour through the world of science, unlocking its knowledge and secrets, with live experiments on stage (think fizzing test tubes and flying bolts of electricity), alongside performances by the expert Royal Scottish National Orchestra and RSNO Junior Chorus. Featuring numbers such as Jurassic Park and Holst’s The Planets, this explosive concert puts big music under the microscope.

RSNO Junior Chorus

Our family-friendly performances, in collaboration with Children’s Classic Concerts, are a fantastic way to introduce the sensational sounds of the symphony orchestra. With lots of onstage antics, imaginative costumes and joining in, you’ll see little ones’ faces light up as they experience their favourite music live.

Children’s Classic Concerts are recommended for children aged4-12, but are perfect for the whole family to enjoy!

In partnership with Glasgow Science Centre
