Young musicians to provide a little lunchtime music

A free lunchbreak concert by young musicians from Aberdeen Grammar School will take place from 12.45pm to 1.30pm on Thursday 11 February, at Aberdeen Citadel, Castle Street.

The Cowdray Hall's popular weekly Lunchbreak Concerts have been temporarily relocated to the Citadel while the hall is closed until winter 2017 as part of Aberdeen Art Gallery's £30m redevelopment project 'Inspiring Art and Music'.

The Aberdeen Grammar School Performers are very excited to have been asked to perform as part of the Citadel's Lunchtime Recital Programme. Having had former pupils attend the Royal Conservatoire in Glasgow, and the Royal College of Music and London, Aberdeen Grammar School is extremely proud of the standard of musical talent they have, and of the opportunities they offer to their pupils.

Their programme reflects the range of skill within all genres of the Music World and the skill of their pupils on a range of instruments.

The series, which is programmed by Artists Advisor Dr Roger B Williams MBE, includes popular artists, and introduces musical stars of tomorrow, all of whom will entertain concert-goers on their lunchbreaks.

Deputy Leader of Aberdeen City Council Councillor Marie Boulton said: "It's great that while Aberdeen Art Gallery and Cowdray Hall are closed as part of a major redevelopment we continue to offer a programme of art and music to residents and visitors to the city, and indeed across the UK and abroad.

"No other city in Scotland hosts a free admission programme such as ours, which invites both amateur and professional musicians to perform. The programme brings high calibre national and international artistes to the city while providing an important performance platform for local musicians, including music students and school pupils."

The concerts are free but donations are welcome. All donations go directly towards supporting the performances and ensuring the continuation of the Lunchbreak programme.
