Yoyo & The Little Auk

Royal Scottish National Orchestra

Introduce wee ones to the magic of classical music with Yoyo & The Little Auk – a new animated adventure with live music from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra!

“a new animated film accompanied by a live orchestral performance”

When a terrible storm hits a flock of birds flying thousands of miles across the ocean, one little auk lands with a plop on a clump of purple heather in Inverkithkin, a charming town smack bang in the middle of Scotland. The lost bird is found by Yoyo, a little girl who is getting ready for her favourite night of the year – the night of the Inverkithkin Ceilidh… 

Yoyo & The Little Auk is the perfect introduction to orchestral music and storytelling for children aged three to six. This interactive experience features a screening of a new animated film accompanied by a live orchestral performance.
