Primary School Concerts

Each year, the Ulster Orchestra performs primary school concerts around Northern Ireland. 


Calling all budding Musical Detectives! 

The Ulster Orchestra and presenter Cath Arlidge are so excited to meet our fantastic primary schools' audiences at concerts across Northern Ireland in November. A full list of the concert dates and venues is below.

Your P4-P7 pupils will become Musical Detectives for the day as they uncover and solve our musical mysteries! 
Accompanying resources will be circulated in advance and, as always, we aim to incorporate suitable curriculum links for KS2.

Pupils whom in the past may have been considered as those who wouldn't enjoy it, came back to school raving about their experience! A first for many of our young learners, but most certainly not the last

The children really did enjoy it and it was great having someone to explain the instruments and the music.

It had a good mix of listening and interaction with the children. Great variety of music styles too.

They really enjoyed the whole performance and having linked prior to the concert with two of the instrumentalists, it really brought it alive for them. Travelling around the world via music was super.

A fantastic experience presented in a child friendly way. Very inspiring for our musicians.
