Video: First Time Live and Film Music Gala at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe
AHEAD of its Film Music Gala, the internationally-acclaimed Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, will get local children to join in and choose music for the concert.
As part of a series of projects called First Time Live, the event has given young people the experience of working with classical musicians.
Youngsters aged between 11 and 15 will plan, programme and present the concert, which will be held at The Baths Hall, in Scunthorpe.
Thirty participants from six schools were selected to take part and will work with the orchestra over three weekends until March.

The project will culminate in a 75 minute concert which will be performed to more than 2,000 local children from key stage 2 and 3.
It will include a range of music including Mozart’s Horn Concerto No.4 and film music from Pirates Of The Caribbean, as well as the music that the young people would have chosen for themselves.
Phil Woods, who plays in the horn section of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and helped to lead the project, said: “I am so inspired to work with children who love music and its surrounding activities.
“It will be fantastic to come to the concert in March and find out what this lot have in store for us.”
The project is being delivered by RPO Resound, the longest-running orchestral music outreach programme of its kind.
Ruth Currie, project organiser, said: “Making quality orchestral experiences and learning opportunities accessible to new audiences is intrinsic to our work as an orchestra.
“We are delighted to be working with young pupils to design and deliver such an innovative learning concert.”
The orchestra will perform the Film Music Gala, at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe, on Thursday, March 7, at 7.30pm.
