Members of the NAC Orchestra Horn Quintet, together with NAC staff were up early to catch the train from Edinburgh to Glasgow this morning. Our destination was the Riverside Museum for an event called ‘Inspire Day’ with members of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Designed by Zaha Hadid, the Riverside Museum is situated on the banks where the Kelvin and River Clyde meet. It’s roofline has multiple peaks that shine like rippled water in the sunshine. It was a fitting location for some inspired music making with over 100 children from five local schools. Students participated in two sessions; first listening to live music inspired by the First World War and then responding to the music by drawing and playing musical instruments.
