Children’s Classic Concerts is delighted to announce their upcoming Halloween concert: ‘Myths & Monsters’, which will take place in Glasgow and Edinburgh this month.

Once again joining forces with the legendary Royal Scottish National Orchestra, this promises to be a fun-filled performance for the whole family.  

This year, CCC's Owen is being challenged with the task of defeating the wicked knight who is trying to take over the concert halls – and stop the music!

The Herald:

You can expect dragon-training exploits, sword-salvaging and jester antics, all accompanied by orchestral works such as the medieval ‘Pastime with Good Company’, Kabalevsy’s 'Galop', and popular theme music from How To Train Your Dragon and Brave

There’s an even more mythical delight in store: the full-blown symphony orchestra version of CCC’s specially commissioned piece ‘Jabberwocky’ set to the popular Lewis Carroll poem. This hour-long concert is jam-packed with music and action; perfect for children aged 4-12, but will also keep the adults entertained! 

The Herald:

“We at CCC really seize the opportunity to present a huge range of music in our concerts: we’ve included Renaissance music alongside contemporary pieces in ‘Myths & Monsters’. Creative programming is what makes us really stand out. It’s such an honour to work with an orchestra like the RSNO who always commit to the full CCC experience!” - Owen Gunnell (CCC’s Artistic Director and Presenter). 

CCC is delighted to offer BSL Interpretation and Audio Description for this performance. If you'd like more details, please email
