‘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.’

‘Music at Aberdeen is a thriving learning, performing and research community ... The University of Aberdeen is unusual in placing both Music and Music Education in the same department, which has a positive benefit for all staff and students. Our flexible BMus degree programme is one of only a handful of degrees in Music which incorporate a teaching qualification. Staff are active as musicologists, composers and performers and their work is recognised and valued throughout the world, both in research communities as well as in the concert hall and via broadcast media.’

‘As well as works by J.S. Bach, the Choir, with over 100 voices, performs a wide variety of choral music from the 16th to the 21st Century ... Our members have varying degrees of musical expertise. We are by no means all expert musicians or sight readers, but we define what it takes to be a choir member as: “to be able to sing accurately and in tune, with a secure sense of rhythm and be familiar with musical notation”. If that sounds like you, I am sure you will enjoy the experience of rehearsing and performing with us ...’

www.aberdeensinfonietta.com

'Founded in 1987, originally as a small group of strings and harpsichord. In 1997, at a time when the group was beginning to feel the need to expand its musical repertoire, they were given the exciting opportunity to expand considerably in order to perform as a chamber orchestra in the Music Hall with Roger Williams as conductor, and with the brilliant Russian pianist Mikhail Kazakevich as soloist. Since then Aberdeen Sinfonietta has established itself as one of the foremost contributors to music-making in the north-east.'
