‘Aberdeen’s oldest and original music, drama and dance Festival began life in 1909 and is still very much alive today ... The Festival adopts the motto of Sir Henry Walford Davies “Not to gain a prize or defeat a rival but to pace one another on the road to excellence”. The Festival is run entirely by volunteers and relies on entry fees, fundraising and sponsorship to continue to offer performance opportunities to musicians, singers and actors from the North East and beyond. The Festival takes place each year in the first week of June, in halls throughout the city. The Festival is not just for the performers. All events are open to the public and audiences are warmly welcomed.’

Since then Aberdeen Sinfonietta has established itself as one of the foremost contributors to music-making in the north-east.'
