Young musicians are given chance to play with a full orchestra

Young volunteers are being urged to sign up to take part in a special festive concert.

The event - featuring a 14-strong orchestra - will take place in Milton of Campsie Village Hall on Saturday, November 28, from 7.30pm.

It’s part of the St Andrew’s festival, supported by G66+live and promoted by Milton of Campsie Village Hall Trust. Entry is £5 and £1 for children.

It’s a great opportunity for children to show their musical talents by playing to lively music with rhythm instruments - playing along with the orchestra - and instruments are provided. It will be a really informal and friendly event, with a refreshment interval.

There will be lovely Christmas music, including carols, and a great guitarist, Marco Ramelli, playing some solos.

All who are interested, from around age 8-14 (or teachers and parents), should contact the organiser at jwhinton@btinternet.com or on 01360 311944.
