An evening of music ranging from classical and traditional to contemporary and featuring 10 ensembles including string and symphony orchestras, wind bands, rock band, Big Band, clarsach, percussion and guitar ensembles and choir, plus a breath-taking finale! Around 400 of Midlothian’s talented music pupils, with the support of a dedicated group of music instructors and teachers, offer you a fantastic evening of entertainment – you will not be disappointed!
Midlothian Council is committed to the teaching and playing of music within our schools and communities. We recognise the many benefits to young people and by extension to our communities. The discipline required to learn, rehearse and play in public is a tool that will serve these young people well as they progress into adulthood.
Midlothian schools continue to strengthen links with their local communities and with friends and colleagues further afield, using the wonderful world of music as the common language.
This concert is the culmination of a great deal of hard work and rehearsal, and audience members will be captivated by this performance.
Now it is time to sit back, relax and enjoy a wonderful of evening music!
