“Spontaneous” orchestra concerts could be set to take place around the streets of Dundee – and even on buses.
As part of a £2.2 million scheme, anti-poverty project Big Noise is set to launch in the city to make “permanent social change” in the Douglas area.
The programme uses music and the experience of being part of an orchestra to improve the futures of local children and families.
As it bids to raise awareness about the event, acting chief executive Colin McKerchar, of Sistema Scotland, which is part-funding the programme, said once it has hired musicians they will perform in random places across Douglas to raise awareness.
He said: “We hope to start the real fun stuff in spring 2017, with things like spontaneous concerts on streets, in schools and on buses around Douglas.”
Mr McKerchar added: “We are hoping to have the office in place at the Douglas Community Centre so we have taken community members up to Torry in Aberdeen where we have had the project in place for a year, so they could see what it looks like.
“We would like to have the office space set up and a project manager in place this autumn.”
They are then looking to hire around five musicians so the charity can begin teaching children music by spring next year.
