Students from across the city will come together for two special spring concerts.
It was announced yesterday that pupils who participate in Aberdeen City Council’s music ensembles will congregate at the Beach Ballroom next week for the performances.
The young musicians will perform on Friday and Saturday, with both concerts commencing at 6.30pm.
The first concert will feature the group’s training band, youth band and guitar ensemble while Saturday’s will invite an audience to listen to the training strings ensemble, youth orchestra and choir.
Councillor John Wheeler, who is the authority’s education convener, said: “The spring concerts are a marvellous platform for our young musicians to display their talents.
“The music service does a wonderful job of nurturing these talents and already this year we have reaped the rewards.
“All the ensembles deserve to play to packed houses and I’m certain that the audiences will have a fantastic evening of entertainment.”
The annual concerts have become a regular feature of the city’s music calendar, and four of the ensemble’s members have previously been selected for groups such as the National Youth Jazz Orchestra, National Youth Orchestra of Scotland’s Junior Orchestra, the Grampian Youth Orchestra and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra Takeover Scheme.
