In August, the European Championships come to Glasgow and Festival 2018 gets underway – and Children’s Classic Concerts can’t wait to join the celebrations with their Soundcycle projectyou’ll not look at a bike the same way again!

Look out for updates on their Facebook and Twitter pages during the build-up and catch their percussionists as they pedal the streets of Glasgow on special bikes – let’s just say, when Samba meets cycling, it sounds wheelie good!

The Essential Orchestra are stepping up to the podium with the Soundcycle concert on Friday 10 August for sporting family fun and medal-winning performances. It will feature the premiere of a new piece of the same name for bicycle and orchestra by Tom Harrold, performed by world-champion percussionist Colin Currie.
