Edinburgh International Festival Schools’ Concert

On Monday, 27th of August, P7 were invited to see watch the Virgin Money concert with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

They were performing pieces from Gustav Holst’s, ‘The Planets’. They played Mars, bringer of War, Saturn, the bringer of Old Age, Uranus, the magician and Jupiter, the bringer of joy!

We were seated next to lots of Primary 7s from schools around Edinburgh.

“I liked it because I love classical music and how it was a live performance of the music. I also liked the sound of the music and my favourite pieces were Mars and Jupiter.”

“We really enjoyed it, it was super fun!”

“Everyone enjoyed the concert very much, despite the never ending wasps!”
