Toy Symphony in Glasgow (2002)

We wanted to share this lovely video footage from our archives. On June 2, 2002, Tod Machover’s Toy Symphony was performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony under the baton of Gerhard Markson. Renowned violinist Joshua Bell played a special “hyperviolin”.  He shared the spotlight with kids playing Beat Bugs and Music Shapers, as well as a children’s chorus.
