SCO: The Chimpanzees of Happytown – Family Festival

Chris Jarvis presenter
Gregory Batsleer conductor
Introduced by Aisling O’Dea
Based on the book by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees
Music by Paul Rissmann

Chutney the Chimpanzee is on a mission to turn dreary Drabsville USA into technicolour Happytown, but there’s just one problem —a very grumpy and stubborn Mayor!

Join us for a host of fun family activities including arts and crafts, wandering musicians and storytelling. Then take your seats in the concert hall for 45 minutes of fabulous live music performed by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, conductor Gregory Batsleer, children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis and the SCO’s very own Aisling O’Dea.

This inclusive performance is designed with a relaxed and supportive attitude to noise and movement within the auditorium. Ideal for four to eight year olds — and their adults!
